Tangipahoa Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested a 26-year-old man Tuesday and accused him of smuggling methamphetamine from California to Louisiana, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Authorities arrested Marvelle Worjloh, of Baton Rouge, after he sold two pounds of methamphetamine to an undercover agent at a Days Inn in Hammond, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Dawn Panepinto said in a news release.

Worjloh was booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on counts of possession with the intent to distribute more than 500 grams of methamphetamine.

Worjloh was arrested as part of an ongoing investigation involving the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office, Hammond Police Department and federal Drug Enforcement Administration.
