ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Deputies discover a half pound of methamphetamine inside a package delivered to a Rochester address.

According to the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office, 37-year-old Fernando Garcia-Davila Jr. was arrested Friday afternoon for his connection to the delivery to an apartment at 1525 Fourth Avenue Southeast.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service identified the suspicious package at their processing center and alerted the Southeast Minnesota Narcotics and Gang Task Force, who conducted a controlled delivery.

According to the criminal complaint, the meth was wrapped inside some children's clothing in the package. A search of Garcia-Davila's residence turned up two more bags containing a meth-like substance and more than $1,500 in currency.

Garcia-Davila faces 1st degree felony drug-sale charges. If convicted, he could face up to 30 years in prison or up to a $1 million fine.
