Police arrested a Reading, Pa., man after he was caught receiving and intending to unload a shipment of marijuana into a unit at a self-storage facility in Cumru Township, Pa. Police estimate the shipment to be valued at $300,000.
Billy Robles signed for the delivery Wednesday and told the men delivering the marijuana, who were undercover agents, to unload the 300 pounds of marijuana into a self-storage unit, investigators said. The marijuana was on a pallet and hidden in 29 boxes of ceramic tile and tile grout.
The tractor-trailer was stopped in Texas by authorities, and a warrant was obtained to open the boxes. The boxes were reportedly being shipped from a fictitious Texas company, Lone Star Wholesalers, to R&R Inc., another fictitious company that rented the storage unit, according to the attorney general’s office.
