SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -

Federal agents say a Puerto Rican man working for a company that provides meals to prisons has been arrested for allegedly delivering narcotics to an inmate.

   The FBI alleged Monday that Abimael Bello Burgos received $1,000 in cash from an undercover agent to deliver narcotics to an inmate at Bayamon State Prison.

   At the time, Bello was working for a company called Canteen Correctional Services.

   He has been charged with conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute 100 grams of heroin. It was not immediately known if Bello had a lawyer.

   The case is being investigated by the U.S. Attorney's Office and the FBI.
