A man was arrested at a hotel near Nashville International Airport after more than 10-pounds of marijuana were delivered to the front desk. 

The manager at Hotel Preston called police after 13-pounds of pot showed up in a package.

According to an affidavit from Metro Nashville Police, a man claiming to be David Lee showed up a short time later and inquired about checking into his room.

The manager could not find his reservation, so the suspect asked for his package.

Police said a sting had been set up at the front desk, but the suspect left before he picked up the package.

Officers followed him from the hotel and stopped him for speeding on Interstate 40.

Although he had a photo ID that said “David Lee,” the man was identified as Philip Ung.

He was taken into custody and booked on felony drug charges.
