Marijuana, pills seized in Fayette Co.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Fayette County sheriff's deputies found 958 pounds of marijuana in a van during a recent traffic stop on Highway 74.

The bundles of marijuana were found April 30 and led to the arrests of three people.

In a separate drug case, deputies assigned to the county's Tactical Narcotics Team, confiscated 12,700 Xanax pills on April 27.

The sheriff's office said deputies received a tip from U.S. Immigration and Customs official about a suspicious package at a local mail service.

No arrests were made in that case, but an investigation continues.
