Cops bust three for meth in Duluth

DULUTH — Undercover officers busted three alleged drug dealers in Duluth last week, “buying” more than 100 grams of methamphetamine before a search of their home revealed even more.

Gwinnett County police officers set up the faux drug deal via telephone near the intersection of Sugarloaf and Marathon parkways, with the suspects allegedly agreeing to provide 108 grams — almost four ounces — of meth.

Upon subsequently searching their residence on Wagon Wheel Trace, another 117 grams of meth and a small amount of cocaine were found, police reported.

Bonnie Angela Sanchez, 35, of Norcross was booked and charged with trafficking methamphetamine. Jose Luviano-Silva, 35, lived at the searched residence and was also taken into custody.

A third suspect, also believed to live at the searched home, has not yet been detained by authorities, police spokesman Cpl. Brian Kelly said.

Sanchez and Luviano-Silva remain in Gwinnett County Jail with no bond.
