After showing up with a kilogram of methamphetamine at a predetermined location, according to authorities, a Cumming woman was arrested Thursday and charged with methamphetamine trafficking.

Denny Santana-Bernal, 24, was arrested on the 2800 block of Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville by Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad agents.

The kilogram of methamphetamine seized is valued at $100,000.

Lt. Scott Ware of the MANS unit said agents used calls and text messages to arrange a meeting with Santana-Bernal.

Gainesville police assisted the MANS unit in the drug investigation.

“We try to have uniformed presence with us on these vehicle takedowns and the arrests, just in the event that they flee in their vehicle,” Ware said.

Santana-Bernal is charged with trafficking methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. She was booked into the Hall County Jail on Friday.

“At this point, we don’t anticipate any further arrests,” Ware said.

Santana-Bernal does not have bond at this time, according to jail officials.
