    ATLANTA - A multi-agency squad seized over $1,640,000 in a joint narcotics investigation that spanned the country.

    On Feb. 17 agents arrested 12 suspects in Georgia and Louisiana in connection with the trafficking of marijuana, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.

    Agents said they seized approximately 100 pounds of marijuana with a street value of $500,000, 10 vehicles, about $1,000,000 in real estate, 50 firearms, about $120,000 cash, and about $20,000 in drug assets.

    The marijuana that was sold was of a "very high grade," drug agents said.

    The agents determined that the marijuana was grown in Mendocino, Calif., and then transported to Douglasville through New Orleans, according to investigators. Once in Douglasville, mid-level dealers distributed the marijuana into Atlanta and the surrounding areas.

    More arrests and seizures are anticipated as the investigation continues.
