$A Gainesville man was arrested after authorities said they seized $400,000 worth of methamphetamine, marijuana and heroin Thursday, Dec. 17.

Delbert Channie Tucker, 52, faces charges of trafficking heroin and meth as well as possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, after narcotics agents executed a search warrant Thursday at a West Waterwood Drive home.

Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Derreck Booth said the officers seized roughly 8 pounds of meth, 2 pounds of marijuana, 8 grams of heroin and $83,000 in cash.

Some of the items seized have candy-like packaging, but Booth said they were an edible marijuana product.

Tucker was still being booked into the Hall County jail on Friday afternoon. 

No further arrests are expected, but Tucker could face additional charges, Booth said.

It was the second time in a week where authorities said they took $400,000 worth of drugs off the street in addition to another multi-agency case that led to at least nine arrests.

Booth said none of the cases are connected and were considered independent investigations.

The case is still under investigation.
