GAINESVILLE - Authorities in Hall County Monday morning released details of an arrest that netted methamphetamine worth an estimated $303,200 on the street.
"It was the crystal methamphetamine, which is the clear looking almost like rock salt looking shards," Gainesville-Hall County Multi Agency Narcotics Squad Lt. Scott Ware said.
36 year old Wilfredo Aguilar-Gonzalez is charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and immigration hold.
Ware said it went down using a confidential informant.
"Basically, a call was made and an order was placed, and Mr. Aguilar-Gonzalez delivered meth, which was approximately 6.76 pounds to a location in Flowery Branch," Ware said.
Ware said the arrest happened without incident in the 7300 block of Spout Springs Road on July 27. MANS agents, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and deputies with the Hall County Sheriff's Office took part in the case.
According to Ware, Aguilar-Gonzalez, an illegal immigrant and native of El Salvador, had been living in Austell. The arrest went down July 27.
