A Branford man was arrested on narcotics violations early Monday following an investigation that began in May, police said.
Stuart Rosenberg, 63, of Rockland Park in Branford, turned himself in at Fairfield police headquarters. He was charged with possession of more than four ounces of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to sell, police said.
The investigation began on May 18, when a Fedex package for Rosenberg arrived at his place of work, an office on Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield. Rosenberg, who was on vacation, reportedly told a coworker to sign for the package.
The coworker signed for the package and opened it, revealing approximately one pound of marijuana, police said. The colleague turned the package over to police.
Rosenberg was interviewed by police when he returned from vacation, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said. He told police the package was from a friend and it was supposed to contain paperwork.
Police applied for a warrant for Rosenberg's arrest and he turned himself in on Monday. He is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 13.

According to the police report, Antzoulis and Deacutis were at a party at Szost Drive when they started to argue. They reportedly pushed, hit, and grabbed each other before Antzoulis left in a Dodge Neon and Deacutis, shirtless, started to walk away from the scene. Police caught up with both and detained them.
Police noted scratches on Deacutis' chest and bruises on Antzoulis' arm. Both were released after posting $5,000 bonds and were scheduled to have appeared in court on Monday.
