Larry Dean Blankenship Jr., 31, of Flowery Branch was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute and possession of MDMA, or ecstasy.

James Michael McDaniel, 52, was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute as well as possession of cocaine and possession of marijuana.

The two were arrested in the 6100 Block of Devonshire Drive in Flowery Branch.

"We had information that they were selling from the residence, so we applied for and received a search warrant," Ware said.

Both suspects were booked in the Hall County Jail.
