HOUSTON, Minn. (WXOW) - The Houston County Sheriff's Office said a rural Houston man was arrested with more than four pounds of methamphetamine earlier this week. 

Chief Deputy Brian Swedberg said on January 11, the sheriff's office and the Southeast MN Violent Crime Enforcement Team was contacted by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Police and told about a UPS package that they'd intercepted that contained approximately four pounds of meth. 

It was addressed to a Todd Lamore in rural Houston. 

The next day, officers searched Lamore's home. Besides the four pounds, an additional half-pound of meth was discovered. 

After the search, Lamore was arrested. 

He was formally charged with Felony 1st Degree Possession of Methamphetamine on Thursday.

Lamore is in the Houston County Jail on $100,000 bail.
