The employee contacted the Fruitland Park Police Department because he thought the circumstances were suspicious. Police opened the package and found about 260 grams of crystal meth hidden in a bag of cat food, deputies said. The drugs were worth around $30,000.At this point, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Special Investigations Unit took over the investigation.During the investigation, Robert Morris, 48, from Eustis, called the company to ask about the package.

After a brief struggle, Morris was placed under arrest and taken to Lake County Detention Center where he was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine and resisting arrest, deputies said.His bond is set at $500,500.
