$1M in pot seized in S. Fulton

Police said they seized more than a million dollars worth of marijuana in a record setting drug bust in the small town of Palmetto in south Fulton County.

Federal agents seized a tractor-trailer load in Palmetto. Investigators said they found 1,700 pounds of pot with a street value of $1.2 million.

Investigators said the bust set a record for the tiny town.

“It was a drop off area,” said Asst. Chief John Cooper of the Palmetto Police Department.

Investigators said the marijuana was hidden in the truck.

The seizure was a joint operation between the Palmetto Police Department, Fayette County Sheriff’s tactical narcotics team, the Georgia State Patrol and the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

A white cargo van was also seized in the bust. One person was placed under arrest. Investigators have not released that person’s name.
