Prosecutors say that a 70-year-old Framingham man convicted of receiving an out-of-state package full of marijuana two years ago has done it again. Police arrested James Auerbach near his home Wednesday after he allegedly picked up a package with 6 pounds of cannabis from a UPS facility in Needham. The package came from California.
