WARRENTON, Georgia Authorities are calling the seizure of 11 kilos of cocaine - estimated to be worth $1.2 million - the largest drug bust in Warren County's history.
Sheriff's officials say the drugs were found after a traffic
stop on Interstate 20 late Wednesday.
Warren County Deputy Sammy Purvis says at least one person has
been arrested and charged - 28-year-old Cleveland Hall of College
Park, Ga. Purvis said Hall is charged with trafficking in cocaine and obstruction of a law enforcement officer. He was jailed in Thomson, and a bond hearing is set for Friday.
Authorities say he was stopped on I-20 for an equipment violation. The 2003 Audi was taken to a sheriff's office, where authorities say they discovered a hidden compartment between the back seat and trunk.
