The Marietta/Cobb/Smyrna (MCS) Narcotics Unit, which was formed in 1980, is a multijurisdictional task force with members from the Cobb Sheriff’s Office and police from the county and the cities of Marietta, Smyrna, Acworth, Kennesaw and Powder Springs. Investigators from the Cobb District Attorney and Solicitor General’s Office are also part of the task force.
Col. Milton Beck of the sheriff’s office said the drugs had a street value of about $30 million.
