$2M worth of meth hidden inside Disney figurines (PHOTOS)

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — Channel 2 Action News has learned that authorities confiscated more than 500 pounds of meth hidden inside wax Disney figurines.

The DEA tells Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Mark Winne that this is one of the biggest meth busts ever in Gwinnett County.

The meth -- with a street value of around $2 million -- was concealed inside 500 wax figurines.

Robert Murphy, the special agent in charge of the DEA, says the figures were shaped like Disney figures, but there is nothing family-oriented about them.

Murphy told Winne the meth originated in Mexico and was destined for Atlanta.
