MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a joint investigation led to the seizure of 100 kilograms of cocaine just outside Atlanta.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says in a news release Thursday that agents got a tip about a tractor-trailer containing a large amount of narcotics in Cobb County.
The GBI says agents saw three men in and around the tractor-trailer on June 25: Javier Leonardo Rodriguez-Buitrago of Dacula; Ferrando Rodriguez of Gary, Indiana; and Jesus Ruben Rosillo of McAllen, Texas.
State troopers stopped their vehicle. Rodriguez and Rodriguez-Buitrago were arrested for possession of marijuana.
Agents say during a search of the tractor-trailer, they found a hidden compartment containing 100 kilograms of suspected cocaine.
All three face drug-related charges and were being held at the Cobb County jail. It wasn’t immediately clear if they had lawyers.
