MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — Mobile County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Border Patrol arrested two men for trafficking methamphetamine.

MCSO deputies say 36 kilograms (80 pounds) of methamphetamine was seized from two men traveling eastbound on I-10.

“The street value for 80 pounds of Mexican Ice would be about $1,000,000.00.” Cochran believes, “This is a prime example of how partnering with other agencies to share intelligence can prevent the drugs from ever hitting our streets,” said Sheriff Sam Cochran.

German Eduardo Barahona and Jaime Enrique Cortez were arrested on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018, for trafficking methamphetamine. They are being held in Mobile Metro Jail.
