Officers seized nearly 4 pounds of meth and more than $2,200 in cash from a vehicle traveling on Interstate 85.
A routine traffic stop on Interstate 85 in Buford last week led to the discovery of nearly four pounds of methamphetamine with a street value around $165,000.
A Gwinnett County Police officer pulled over Gerardo Guerrero on Sept. 3 for failure to maintain a lane. After questioning the driver, the officer became suspicious of an itinerary that did not make sense.
The officer also noticed several air fresheners hanging throughout the vehicle and a small duffle bag sitting on the back seat, a report obtained by the Daily Post stated.
Police said when the driver and passenger agreed to allow the officer search the vehicle, the officer found 1,640 grams of methamphetamine and $2,244 in cash, the report said.
The driver and the passenger, Karina Estrada, were both arrested. The two are listed as residents of Martinsville, Va.
