GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi man has been arrested after authorities found nearly 80 grams (2.8 ounces) of heroin in a hotel room.

The Sun Herald reports 40-year-old Alexander Archie Jr. was arrested Monday on federal charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute heroin.

Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson says Archie was found inside of the Gulfport hotel room with the heroin, scales and nine dosage units of Hydrocodone.

Authorities say the Drug Enforcement Agency is handling the case. It’s unclear if Archie has a lawyer.
