A man is scheduled to plead guilty next week to federal charges that he was involved in the shipment of 145 pounds of marijuana from Texas to Mississippi.

Court records say the marijuana was inside a steel construction beam being shipped from Brownsville, Texas, to Jackson, Miss.

Authorities intercepted the shipment in Dallas, then tracked it to Jackson in October.

Several men picked up the load of steel beams in Jackson. They collided with a police car when they were pulled over.

Federal court records say one of the men, Joshua Brown, who picked up the shipment at a company in Mississippi is scheduled to plead guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Jackson.

Three others charged in the case have pleaded not guilty.
