Cobb woman gets 25 years in prison for selling drugs from home

A Mableton woman was sentenced to 25 years in prison Friday after she pleaded guilty to trafficking methamphetamine out of her home, Cobb District Attorney spokeswoman Kim Isaza said.

Bidiliana Garcia admitted in court to running “a drug and cash stash house” out of her home on Queen Mill Road in Mableton, Isaza said.

Federal agents went to Garcia’s home in November 2015 on a tip that she was selling drugs out of her home, according to a news release.

Garcia let the agents inside the home, which had “large quantities of suspected methamphetamine in plain view,” Isaza said. Officials found 45 pounds of meth and more than $16,000 in cash.

“This conviction breaks a link in the deadly supply chain pushing poison into our community,” Assistant District Attorney Brendan Murphy said. “In Cobb County, drug users get the help they need, but drug traffickers go to prison. Period.”

In addition to her prison sentence, Garcia must pay a $1 million fine.
