FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Lee County Sheriff's deputies say a 35-year-old man tried to send methamphetamine through Federal Express.

Jason A. Vanlaningham was arrested Tuesday on a charge of trafficking 14 or more grams of methamphetamine. He is being held in the Lee County Jail; it is unclear whether he has retained an attorney.

According to a report, investigators were tipped off to the package by a confidential informant. Deputies contacted Vanlaningham, who allowed deputies to open the package.

The package had a tracking number and Vanlaningham's address as the return address. Deputies say they also found drugs in Vanlaningham's car.
