RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man was convicted of drug charges after authorities say he was caught trying to make a transaction with methamphetamine hidden in dog food bags.

Brandon Duwayne Wright of High Point was convicted of conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute the illegal stimulant, according to a news release Tuesday from federal prosecutors.

Prosecutors say Wright, who is 33, traveled from Georgia to North Carolina in 2018 to deliver methamphetamine hidden in two large dog food bags and a box of laundry detergent. He was delivering the drugs to someone cooperating with authorities in the parking lot of a Walmart in Greenville, according to prosecutors.


Prosecutors say he faces a sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

Defense attorney Sean Vitrano declined comment on the conviction Thursday.
