NORCROSS, Ga. (AP) --

Police in Georgia have seized more than 900 pounds of methamphetamine worth an estimated $44.6 million on the
street, which they believe is one of the largest meth seizures in
the country.

Gwinnett County police say they raided a house in the
Atlanta-area city of Norcross Monday afternoon (Nov. 29) after being told a large amount of meth was being produced there.

Investigators confiscated 933 pounds of meth with an estimated
street value of about $44.6 million.

Investigators have arrested 33-year-old Jose Galvez-Vela of
Weslaco, Texas, and charged him with trafficking meth. Police
didn't know if he had a lawyer. They are looking for others
involved in the operation.

It doesn't appear that anyone was living in the home and it was
used strictly for making meth.

    Plenty of ppl who have foreign names and were born in America. You ppl need to quit being so ignorant. You don't own the country either, so you have no say in who gets to be here. Take care of your life and let others live their's. Maybe we should kick you out of the country for being so ignorant and closed minded.

    They might have been making it but it's the person's choice to buy it. Like when you go to the store, it's your choice to buy a bottle of wine or a gallon of milk. They're simply the manufacturer's and providers here. Maybe they should keep it and sting the people trying to use it. I dunno, I don't really care about stuff like this. It's everybody's choice whether or not they choose to do drugs and shutting this place down just means the buyers are going to find somewhere else to shop.
