Domingo Cobo-Depaz, 33, and Francisco Javier Angel-Garcia, 31, were arrested Nov. 20 and charged with drug trafficking, and possession of illegal drugs.
The charge of trafficking involves the sale, delivery, or possession of 28 or more grams of the illegal drug and, if convicted, comes with a minimum 10-year sentence and a mandatory $200,000 fine.
Jones County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Robert Reece said Cobo-Depaz and Angel-Garcia were arrested at a shopping center on Shurling Drive. He said the arrests were the result of an ongoing investigation and the men were found in possession of five ounces of methamphetamine that has a street value of approximately $10,000.
Reece said the men both have Macon addresses and investigators have been working the case for a couple of months. He said the JCSO was assisted in the arrests by the Macon Narcotics Unit, Ocmulgee Task Force, and U.S. Immigration and Customs.
The men were targets of the investigation.
