JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas man has been arrested after police say he had 134 pounds of marijuana shipped from Mexico to his home.

Jonesboro Police Department spokesman Paul Holmes said officers posed as delivery company employees Thursday and arrested 52-year-old Alberto Gomez-Reyes after he signed for the package containing the marijuana. Police say he had the officers place it in the back of his truck.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/23OYZZy ) reports that Gomez-Reyes has been charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver. He’s being held at the Craighead County jail on a $500,000 bond.

It was not immediately clear whether Gomez-Reyes has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
