Metro Nashville police said 42-year-old Tam Nguyen was charged with having 445 pounds of marijuana that had been shipped here from California. It was to be sold in this area. 

Officers watched Thursday as he took possession of a storage pod that had been delivered to him at 6350 Nolensville Pike. He agreed to a search of the pod, which contained 215 pounds of marijuana in boxes, police said.
