NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A 20-year-old man is in custody after an investigation revealed that he was having marijuana shipped to an apartment behind his home and picking it up while the tenant was out.

New Orleans police said Tuesday that Dominic Angelica was booked with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and five warrants from Jefferson Parish. It was unknown if Angelica has an attorney.

Police began investigating last week after a resident in the Lakeview neighborhood received a package in the mail and discovered five vacuum sealed bags of marijuana inside. The resident notified police who uncovered an operation that had been going on for some time.

Police also confiscated $10,000 in cash, nearly 10 pounds of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
