Two Buford men were arrested at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday for allegedly trafficking methamphetamine.
According to a post on the Jones County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, the arrests of Edwin Flores, 25, and Luis Sandoval, 21, took place as a result of a two month investigation of drug trafficking in middle Georgia.
The sheriff's office assisted Gray Police Department and the United States Marshals Service Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force in the bust.
Both Flores and Sandoval were found to be in possession of approximately five ounces of methamphetamine as well as a Smith and Wesson .45 pistol. Investigators also seized $1,750, the Facebook post states. Sandoval is on probation in Barrow County for possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Both men were charged with trafficking methamphetamine and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Sandoval will also be charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Both are currently being held in the Jones County LEC without bond, according to the Facebook post.
