Two people arrested in $5.3M meth bust in Clayton County

Clayton County police seized more than $5 million worth of methamphetamine Thursday during the search of a home near Morrow.

The house in the 1800 block of Candlelight Court had “been under investigation for some time,” Clayton County police spokeswoman Charlene Watson-Fraser said.

“The Clayton County Drug Task Force observed that the location was used as a drug stash house,” she said.

Investigators obtained a search warrant Thursday and found 93.26 pounds of meth, which carries a street value of $5.3 million, according to Watson-Fraser.

Police have not released the names of two people arrested at the home during Thursday’s bust.
