El PASO, Texas -- A UPS truck driver is accused of delivering illegal drugs alongside his legitimate cargo on his El Paso route, sheriff's deputies said Friday.

Armando Barron, 39, was arrested Thursday on charges that included three counts of manufacturing, delivery and possession of dangerous drugs.

After receiving a tip about the "possible promotion and sale of illegal narcotics," sheriff's investigators set up a sting operation that they said led to Barron's arrest after he "delivered controlled substances for sale while operating his UPS work truck."

Barron remained jailed on Friday in the El Paso County Detention Facility.
