Victor Hugo Mendiola-Saucedo, 27, of Gainesville was arrested at his Green Hill Road residence and charged with two counts of trafficking methamphetamine and two counts of sale of methamphetamine on Tuesday.

Mendiola-Saucedo’s arrest came as agents executed a search warrant after two separate sales of meth, to an individual and an undercover agent, earlier the same day, according to a news release from the Multi Agency Narcotics Squad.

The sales totaled 1.25 pounds of meth, with an estimated street value of $56,000, the release said.

Mendiola-Saucedo was determined to be an illegal resident of the U.S., according to the news release, and an immigration hold was placed on him.

He made his first appearance Wednesday and was given a committal hearing date of June 19 following the arrest during a drug investigation by MANS, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, FBI, Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office and Georgia National Guard Counter Drug Task Force.

No bond was set because it must be determined by a Superior Court judge. Mendiola-Saucedo, who had an outstanding warrant for his arrest stemming from an unrelated incident, according to the MANS release, remained in the Hall County Jail as of 5 p.m. Wednesday.
