WILLOWICK, Ohio — The Lake County Bomb Squad responded to a house in Willowick Thursday after the resident reported a suspicious package from Leonardo "Dicappio” had arrived.

The resident told officers that she heard someone on her front porch, and when she looked outside, a sizable white package was sitting there, according to a police report.

The woman didn’t recognize the name the box was addressed to, but it had her address on it. The return address label stated the package had been sent from Leonardo Dicappio at St. Corvallis, Oregon address, the report stated.

The woman contacted police about the box. Authorities determined the return address was fake, and the bomb squad was called in. Eventually, the package was opened, and authorities found marijuana inside as well as possible heroin, according to the report.
