Agents with the North Alabama HIDTA Drug Task Force recently conducted an investigation which resulted in a large seizure of illicit narcotics. Agents were able to recover over 2.7 pounds of cocaine, 283 grams of methamphetamine (ice), over $23,000 in currency, and one handgun. The estimated street value of the narcotics seized is $150,000. These dangerous drugs were transported from Texas and meant to be distributed into our community. Victor Gonzalez, a resident of San Antonio, TX, was arrested on December 11th and charged with Trafficking Cocaine and Trafficking Methamphetamine. He was booked into the Madison County jail, with a combined bond amount of $300,000. Also arrested was Huntsville resident, Thomas Nance. He was charged with Conspiracy to Commit a Controlled Substance Crime. His bond was set at $20,000. This is an ongoing investigation and we are hopeful more seizures and arrests will occur.
