A Springville man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly receiving cocaine and heroin from Amsterdam.

According to a police report, Lindon police were contacted by Homeland Security about an envelope that had been intercepted by U.S. Customs in Chicago. The envelope was mailed from Amsterdam and addressed to a T. Holman at a business in Lindon. A U.S. Customs K9 was reportedly used to sniff the package and the dog alerted on the envelope for illegal drugs. Officers then opened the envelope and found heroin inside.

Homeland Security forwarded the envelope to the Lindon Police Department. Lindon police tested the substance and found it was heroin and cocaine, according to police. Security was contacted at the business the envelope was addressed to, and officers were told that Travis Holman worked at the business.

According to the police report, the U.S. postal inspector delivered the envelope to the Lindon business Tuesday and contacted Holman, who received the envelope and signed for it.

Holman was taken into custody and booked into the Utah County Jail on suspicion of possession of heroin in a drug free zone and possession of cocaine in a drug free zone.
