Huge Etowah meth bust
A huge meth bust in Etowah County. On Friday in Albertville, deputies seized around 200-thousand dolllars worth of methamphetamine and arrested a Mexican national. 20-year-old Hector Aragon Vasquez of Mexico is charged with drug trafficking. The sheriff’s office says the arrest followed a three and a half week investigation by a half-dozen law enforcement agencies. After drug-sniffing dogs detected drugs inside Vasquez’s vehicle, deputies found three and a half pounds of high quality meth–and cash–hidden inside. Vasquez was being held in the Etowah County jail on a half-million dollar bond.
