HILO, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A Hilo man is accused of receiving over a pound of crystal meth in a Fed Ex package then trying to torch the evidence as officers closed in on him.

Court papers show officers used a device to track the suspect package to 42-year-old Maximillian Oleksiak's home.

But when they arrived, the package was on fire.

They put out the flames and found a Cookie Monster doll inside. The head was stuffed with more than a pound of methamphetamine.

He faces up to 20 years in prison.
