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.
