CLEVELAND (AP) - Federal authorities say a California man accused of bringing more than 10,000 doses of methamphetamine into the Cleveland area has been charged with trafficking in the drug.

A prosecutor says a federal grand jury on Wednesday returned a two-count indictment charging 53-year-old George Schepp of Los Angeles with trafficking methamphetamine. The acting U.S. attorney in Cleveland says Schepp brought drugs worth tens of thousands of dollars into the Cleveland community from California.

Cleveland.com reports Schepp’s attorney says more about the case will be revealed following Schepp’s arraignment May 10.

Court documents say Schepp was arrested April 10 at the baggage claim area at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport after a drug dog alerted authorities to narcotics in his suitcase. Authorities say he had more than three ounces of methamphetamine in his luggage.
