Spokesman Eric Gulino said Randolph Johnson, 27, of Gretna was arrested for attempted possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
According to Gulino, detectives with the Mandeville Police received a tip that a package containing narcotics was being delivered from California to Mandeville.
The police intercepted the package at the local hub of a national delivery carrier and found that it contained a pound of high-grade marijuana, believed to be worth $4,000.
Police continued the delivery to Johnson’s place of work and arrested him after he accepted the package. He was booked into the St. Tammany Parish jail.
