Authorities charge 4 with meth trafficking

POSTED: March 26, 2013 11:38 p.m.

Narcotics agents released information Tuesday about three men arrested last Thursday on charges of trafficking about $22,400 in methamphetamine.

Juan J. Arreguin, 23, Pete A. Lopez, 21, and Richard Sandoval, 22, all of Lawrenceville, face charges of trafficking methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and possession of marijuana. Lopez and Sandoval also face charges of possession of cocaine.

Multi Agency Narcotics Squad agents arrested them in the 4900 block of Lanier Islands Parkway in Hall County after they say the men arrived with about 8 ounces of methamphetamine to be sold. Also seized was a small amount of cocaine, marijuana and $3,000.

All three suspects were booked at the Hall County Jail.

No bond was set at first appearance in Hall County Magistrate Court because the charges require it be set only at Superior Court. The men will have a committal hearing at 9 a.m. April 18 and said in court that they intend to hire their own representation.

In another case, a Gainesville man was arrested Monday on charges of trafficking methamphetamine.

A MANS investigation led to the 500 block of Park Street in Gainesville, where authorities said they found Jeremy David Jackson, 33, in possession of about $800 worth of methamphetamine, less than 1 ounce of marijuana, as well as packaging materials and digital scales.

Jackson is charged with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana. He was booked into the Hall County Jail and had his first appearance in court this afternoon. He said he intends to apply for indigent defense. Jackson is not eligible for bond until he sees a Superior Court judge, and his committal hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. April 8.
