MABLETON — Four men remain in the Cobb County Jail on charges in connection with trafficking methamphetamine and on immigration holds.

Pablo Acevedo, 25, of Powder Springs; Felipe A. Diaz, 38, of Austell; Antonio Acevedo, 23, of Mableton; and Enrique Mendez, 42, of Phoenix, Ariz.; were all arrested last Wednesday on charges of trafficking meth.

Diaz, who was arrested at his home in the 1100 block of Dillon Road in Austell, was also charged with theft by receiving a firearm.

According to the arrest warrant, agents with the Marietta/Cobb/Smyrna Narcotics Unit were at Diaz’s home doing what police call a “knock and talk” when they discovered a gun that was reported stolen to Forrest Park Police Department.

They also found 206.7 grams, or almost half a pound, of meth in the kitchen.

Pablo Acevedo, who was arrested in the 700 block of Boggs Road in Austell along with Mendez, was also charged with obstruction for reportedly trying to get away from police when they arrested him.

He and Mendez are accused of having 451.3 grams, or almost one pound of meth, in their car when they met someone at the corner of Denny and Kenneth lanes in Mableton and sold them drugs, the warrant states.

Antonio Acevedo was arrested in the 1100 block of Cliff Drive in Mableton after police also conducted a knock and talk at his home.

Narcotics agents discovered one gram of meth in the bathroom, 20.9 grams of meth in what is referred to as a “burn barrel” in his back yard, 28.4 grams of meth in the wood pile behind the house, an electronic scale, sifter and resealable plastic bags, the warrant states.

People judge without knowing the whole story. Stereotypical people will say what is on their mind, not knowing every fact. These racist comments should not have to do with this. Americans are for freedom and equality not to be judgmental and racist.

There they go again, yet again.. Our government is hard at work making itself bigger and making prices higher.

Mister Sam, you can be guaranteed these are all legal citizens since the MDJ somehow "accidentally" omitted their citizenship status from the story.

If these guys were not already known to be U.S. citizens, there would be another predictable editorial here about how Illegals are ruining America or whatever, and A.J. King would be leading another march on the Union Cemetery demanding "Rights for Whites" just like old J.B. Stoner did before him.

Learn to read English, the first sentence says they are on immigration holds.

It's DA King, a fine citizen, taxpayer and patriot who forces our treasonous Senators from Georgia to look at the problems with illegals invading our country and our state.

Ahhh 4 more of those fine illegals that Obama wants o give a free ride and grant them instant citizenship.

People we need to scream and loudly at our elected officials and if they vote for this amnesty bill, they need to get voted out of office.

What is a "knock and talk"---sounds like police did not have a warrant. Probably not enough prior evidence against these people to get one.

Ladies and gentlemen...these are the best and the brightest of ardent supporters, Rich Pellegrino, Jerry Gonzalez and Kevin Foley. Like Samuel Adams, I'm also tired of the same story, day in and day out. Deport them all. One at a time. Ask for volunteers to build a wall or fence or freaking fortress. Whatever is needed to keep the benefit sucking, crime committing scum out of our country.

Wow, illegal aliens trafficking drugs, didn't see that coming. Perhaps Rich Pellegrino ran out of jobs for his job program.

Deport these evil looking third world lawbreakers. Wow, I am just tired to death of this stuff. Look at what the Democrats want us to accept. These are their voters. These are their responsibility.

Yes, I am profiling. Hardened foreign nationals with not a semblance of anything to offer America except the results of their hard, corrupted, lost lives.

Jail them

We need to start giving these criminals time in prison. Deporting them does no good because they are back within a few months. We have to secure our borders and deport them to souhtern Mexico. We simply dump them across the border and they come back. It is a shame that America has been changed because of all the bleeding heart liberals. Civil rights my rearend. These illeglas have no rights in our country!
