Atlanta area police seize $6 million in cocaine, weapons, cash

ATLANTA — Police say they confiscated more than $6 million worth of cocaine, weapons and cash during a pair of overnight raids southwest of Atlanta.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a task force of narcotics officers from Fulton and DeKalb counties converged on a warehouse on Wendell Drive in south Fulton County, where they found a large amount of cocaine around 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Fulton County police Det. Melissa Parker said three suspects were taken into custody at the warehouse, and investigators then obtained a search warrant for another location connected to the warehouse. Police discovered cash and weapons at the second site early Thursday morning.
