A 26-year-old Annapolis man who was allegedly having marijuana sent by Federal Express to his home was arrested yesterday after U.S. Customs Service officials seized a package containing 2.5 pounds of the drug.

An Annapolis police officer posing as a Federal Express delivery man arrested Jeremy R. Galloway at his home in the 1300 block of Tyler Ave. without incident at about 12:30 p.m., police said.

The package, which had a label addressed to L&B Distributors at 1336 Tyler Ave., Annapolis, was seized and forwarded to the Baltimore office.

An undercover detective, dressed in a Federal Express uniform, delivered the package to Mr. Galloway's home with the narcotics team following behind.

Mr. Galloway was being held atpolice headquarters yesterday on charges of possessing drugs, possessing drugs with the intent to distribute and possessing drugs within a school zone, said Officer Dermott L. Hickey, a police spokesman.
