WASHINGTON (WJLA) - While holiday shoppers started to ship gifts, one person in Northwest Washington was accused of trying to send methamphetamine through the mail.

An arrest report shows the suspect was arrested Tuesday at the UPS store on 18th Street in Adams Morgan.

Investigators believe the three vacuum-sealed packages contained more than 1,000 grams of meth, which they estimate to be worth $30,000.

Records show it was an FBI case, but agents would not comment on it because it is an ongoing investigation. They would not provide information about the suspect or how he was caught.

A UPS spokesperson told ABC7 News the company could also not comment on the investigation, but the spokesperson would say that UPS works closely with law enforcement.
