Drug task force agents charged two people after they say they found $42,000 of drugs Friday, March 15, while searching a home close to North Hall High School.

The Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad executed a search warrant at a home in the 4000 block of Mount Vernon Road.

Lt. Don Scalia said agents seized more than 15 ounces of methamphetamine in eight bags, roughly half an ounce of marijuana, scales, packaging materials and smoking devices.

Scalia said the residence was close to North Hall High School, but the lieutenant did not have any reason to believe anyone from the school was in contact with the residents.

“We watched the house for a pretty good period of time, and there was nothing like that going on at all,” Scalia said.

Amber Sue Hancock, 26, and Bradley Allan Jones, 30, both of Gainesville, were arrested and charged with trafficking and possessing meth with the intent to distribute. They also face charges of possessing marijuana with the intent to distribute and possession of meth within 1,000 feet of a school.
