Authorities say they have arrested a man during a drug bust in Alpharetta that uncovered $4,000,000 worth of crystal methamphetamine.

Officials say Moises Isidro-Jaimes, 34, was arrested after officers from the Atlanta Police Department and the US Drug Enforcement Administration executed a warrant at an apartment. Jaimes, a previously deported criminal alien, was already wanted by the Immigration and Naturalization Service, officials said.

During the bust, authorities seized 95 pounds of meth.

Alpharetta DPS Director Gary D. George said  "I want to publicly thank our detectives who worked this significant seizure and the DEA for their exceptional work and partnership with us. This case represents how the DEA partners with and brings in local law enforcement in a joint effort to eradicate drugs from communities all across America."
