The Covington News - - CRIME & COURTS -

CUM­MING — Au­thor­i­ties ar­rested five peo­ple and seized 40 kilo­grams of co­caine and cash dur­ing a drug bust.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors set up sur­veil­lance Sun­day af­ter get­ting a tip that a bus was be­ing used to bring drugs from Mex­ico, Forsyth County Sher­iff Ted Pax­ton said.

The ar­rests were made af­ter au­thor­i­ties fol­lowed the sus­pects to a house in Mil­ton, which is north of At­lanta, and saw drugs and money change hands.

Also seized were a sport util­ity ve­hi­cle and a tour bus.

Pax­ton said it is not un­usual for drug deal­ers and sup­pli­ers to use an out­ly­ing area in an up­scale metro At­lanta neigh­bor­hood. Peo­ple who lived near the home told au­thor­i­ties they saw ex­pen­sive cars at the home but did not no­tice any­thing that seemed un­usual.
