Police sniffer dogs detected the haul of so-called "black bombay" hashish, estimated at 20,000 euros, during a routine check at Germany's Frankfurt airport.
The parcel arrived onboard a flight from New Delhi.
German authorities alerted Italian tax police at Malpensa airport, who raided an address in Mariano Comense town near Como, which was written on the parcel.
The parcel addressee was a previous tenant at the apartment in Mariano Comense, who was evicted by the landlord for rent arrears, police said.
