Law enforcement officials in Gwinnett County arrested two people and seized more than $2 million in methamphetamine last week.
Federal Homeland Security agents and Gwinnett County Sheriff’s deputies were tipped off about drugs at a house on James Road near Lawrenceville, sheriff’s spokeswoman Deputy Shannon Volkodav said.
On May 1, investigators from the Gwinnett Metro Task Force went to the house, where two containers filled with what appeared to be meth were discovered.
After obtaining a search warrant, police found additional meth in liquid form, authorities said.
The home was evacuated, and DEA agents who deal with meth labs came to the home to safely store the potentially volatile chemicals used to make meth, Volkodav said.
Overall, about 131.2 pounds of the highly addictive drug was found at the house, with a street value of $2.1 million, authorities said.
