Atlanta, Georgia: Major Multi-Million Meth Bust Alarms DEA Agents

  "Sol Prendido" for Borderland Beat

More than 1,600 pounds of meth worth about $4.5 million is off the streets after the DEA busted a meth conversion lab in Ellenwood.

According to the DEA, they also arrested three men from Mexico who are in the country illegally. The men also belong to a drug cartel, according to the DEA.

Special Agent in Charge Rob Murphy told CBS46 that the entire basement of a house in Ellenwood was being used to process methamphetamine. The floor above was being used to dry the product.

Murphy says the amount that was discovered is a “staggering” amount of methamphetamine. “This was not a mom-and-pop operation,” said Murphy.

Murphy also said that the meth wasn’t intended to stay here, but would “obviously” be shipped up and down the coast.

Several hundred candles were lit inside of the home.

“Normally what we find, especially when we’re dealing with the Mexican cartel members, there are candles paying homage to the patron saint of narcotic traffickers — Malverde — and then to Santa Muerte, the patron saint of death.”

Murphy said they do this to ward off law enforcement.

Murphy also said that such a significant amount of methamphetamine is dangerous.

“This amount of violate chemicals could have been a disaster.”

Murphy says that drug traffickers look for houses they can rent in a nice, quiet neighborhood for a number of reasons — they don’t want the attention from law enforcement and they don’t want attention from other drug dealers who may be looking to fob them.

Murphy says almost a ton of meth was seized from the house.

“It’s not easy for the cartel to get people into the metro Atlanta area that have this skill set. So, these are significant people that we were able to take off,” said Murphy.

“They’re not going to stop. They’ll keep sending people and we’re not going to stop either. We’ll keep attacking them when they send them.”

    1. I only like this because Meth is overrated. I wouldn’t mind if seizures disproportionately affected meth and fent trafficking. Just leave my coca alone.

    8. They let the brown and black move weight and the moment they get too big they go after them and lock them up. Nobody gets big without dealing with the government somewhere in between..
      CDS had the green light by the DEA to transport drugs, all mayo and chapo had to do was give names of who was making moves.
      El vicentillo wanted to use that in his case and was even going to go to trial on that fact.
      He instead got a sweet deal but since he snitched on himself, he also got a 1.5 or 1 billion fine.
      He's already out and about..
      that's just one example but there are hundreds more

  4. Up here in Canada, pot has been legalized. I don't use drugs and since leglization I have never thought of using weed nor do I know anyone who has started using weed now that it legal. Legalize it all and take the trillions$$ wasted on cops, prisons and justice system and use it for legalization and drug prevention! All these trillions $$$ going to criminal cartels would virtually stop and so would the violence associated with illicit drug trafficking and use!

  5. 11:49 yesterday, meth over-rated, it's about coke. Surely you can't state this. Meth can keep you going days upon days, coke can last a few short hours and you wonder why you wasted your money on it. Coke vs. Meth is like planet earth vs. Milky Way

    1. But what about the people who only want to stay high while at a party or club and then go home and go to bed after..Most ppl don't want to stay high that long and stay awake for 2-3 days at a time

    2. I have read that the demand for blow in the USA is at a low, replaced by meth and fent as the big request.
      The coke is being sent to (especially) Britain as demand is at an all time high, and profit margins are vast.
      Throughout the rest of Europe it seems like Netherlands and Spain are the hotbeds with a lot of the work being arranged by the Romanian mob. (?)
      Not sure if Any of this is true this but the economics and logistics of it all is very interesting.
