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
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.
