BOONE, N.C. – A five year investigation in Watauga County netted over $57,000 worth of crystal meth and landed two suspects behind bars.
Officials said a “closely knit network of drug distributors” was involved in the selling of meth around Watauga County.
Saturday morning, authorities seized $57,120 worth of crystal meth from a home on Howard’s Creek Road.
Among those in uniform helping to track down the drug ring was K9 dog “Maus”, who helped to sniff out the drugs.
Officials said drug detection K9s from the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office and the Boone Police Department were used in the case.
Luis Enrique Garcia was the main distributor according to officials. He was arrested along with Javier Gomez Sanchez.
Both lived at the address on Howard’s Creek Road. Officials said more arrests are expected.
