Six people have been arrested for allegedly moving hundreds of pounds of marijuana from California to Middle Tennessee.

The arrests were made during an ongoing investigation by the Metro Police Department.

Four Nashville natives, William White, 27, Jan Alric Ocbina-Perez, 27, Kyle Fletcher, 27, and Taryn Austin, 28, were taken into custody.

Authorities said the group received several shipments of high-grade marijuana from different locations in northern California.

The shipments were made through the mail.

All four have been charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana.  Perez, Fletcher and Austin have an additional charge of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The other two that were arrested, Luan Nguyen, 26, and Nelson Tu, 24, are in custody in California.

They will be brought back to Nashville to face drug and money laundering charges.
