Record-Breaking Crystal Meth Seizure Reported In GA


Federal drug agents made a “record-breaking seizure” of crystal methamphetamine buried in the back yard of a rural Georgia home they say was used by a Mexican-based drug ring, the Associated Press reports. Agents found 187 1/2 pounds of suspected meth and about 90 pounds of suspected cocaine during a search last week. Estimated street value of the meth was $25 million to $50 million.

Agents charged four men in the raid at the home in Buford, 33 miles northeast of Atlanta. A federal prosecutor said the seizure “underscores the increasing significance that Atlanta plays in the world of drug trafficking.”
