LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - Gwinnett County police say they seized 457 pounds of marijuana, arrested four men and confiscated five guns including an M16 and AK-47 assault rifles.

Police said Thursday the arrests came June 24 after a tip from someone concerned about possible drug activity at a house in Lilburn. After a traffic stop of a vehicle seen leaving the residence, investigators say they found 10 pounds of marijuana in a garbage bag and searched the home, finding $2.1 million worth of marijuana, guns and a large amount of ammunition.

Held without bond on charges including drug trafficking are: 31-year-old Miguel Flores of Lawrenceville, 25-year-old Isalias Corona of Mableton, and 41-year-old Javier Arroyo and 40-year-old Huber Zarco-Huto, both of Lilburn.

No the illegals are not

No the illegals are not trafficking drugs, the Atlanta area has become a main distribution hub from Mexico. People who smoke, grow your own, stop supporting these thugs.

Why is it the big drug bust

Why is it the big drug bust are those from Latin decent, because the failure to control our borders. If Washington would get off their butts and enforce the laws we wouldn't have this problem. No they would rather sell us out, because of a few percentage points in votes they will lose.

Rats, I was hoping they busted some up here. I'm tired of walking outside and smelling it on what should be pleasant, relaxing evenings at home.

LOL Trey. No thank you. I

LOL Trey. No thank you. I prefer legal and safer methods of relaxation as a responsible parent. And Jack, I don't know. I haven't heard them speak, I've only heard gunshots and unintelligible mumbling and haven't seen them, they have a privacy fence. I'm not about to go peeking through a fence whose owners are "randomly" shooting off guns. My other neighbor may know, he chewed them out a couple of times. I didn't ask the officer that responded what race they were, I just want them to stop shooting off guns, and wafting pot smoke onto my property.
