PUEBLO, Colo. — A Pueblo man was arrested after he was caught trying to trade a pound of marijuana for a car, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies said they learned from a tip that 24-year-old Tylor Albin wanted to trade a pound of marijuana or marijuana concentrate for a car. An undercover detective reached out to Albin through social media. The two arranged to meet in front of the home where Albin was staying on East 12th Street–within 1,000 feet of Fountain Elementary School.

When the detective arrived, Albin looked at the car he was in, went into the house, and came out with a pound of marijuana and a small amount of marijuana concentrate, according to the sheriff’s office. Albin traded the marijuana and was arrested immediately.

Deputies searched the home and found four additional pounds of marijuana, according to the sheriff’s office.

Albin is charged with intent to distribute 12 ounces to five pounds of marijuana (a class three felony), and special offender for distribution within 1,000 feet of a school (a class one felony).
