A Virginia man has been arrested after police say a package containing marijuana was mailed to the wrong address.

News outlets report 24-year-old Dakota Allen Dewitt was taken into custody on Saturday and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute in connection with the incident.

Waynesboro police say that on Wednesday, officers intercepted the package for Dewitt that was sent to another Waynesboro address by mistake.

Police say the package, which contained two pounds of marijuana, was sent to the Waynesboro address from someone in Montrose, Colorado, through the U.S. Postal Service.

Dewitt was arrested after authorities set up a sting operation in which Dewitt was contacted and told he could pick up his package.

It isn't immediately clear if he has an attorney.
