ORANGEBURG, SC (WCSC) -

Orangeburg County sheriff's deputies say they have arrested a 40-year-old man who used a Pac-Man arcade machine to traffic 55 pounds of marijuana.

Luis Tyler was arrested Tuesday, April 16 and charged with trafficking marijuana.

According to Sheriff Leroy Ravenell, investigators saw Tyler accept delivery for a full-sized Pac-Man arcade machine which had 55 pounds of marijuana hidden inside. Officers then performed a traffic stop, and Tyler was arrested.

Ravenell says the drug bust was part of an undercover investigation on Tyler by federal officers and investigators with the sheriff's office.

Tyler's bond was set at $75,000.
