SMYRNA - Two men were arrested in Smyrna last week after police said they found 5 kilograms of cocaine in their apartment.

According to police reports, Drug Enforcement Administration agents entered an apartment shared by Dionicio Campos Vazquez, 21, and Artemio Maldonado Santana, 19, last Monday evening and conducted a consent search from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Inside the Kenwood Creek Apartment, at 2345 Cobb Parkway in Smyrna, agents said they found approximately 5 kilograms of cocaine and approximately 200 grams of methamphetamine. Both Vazquez and Santana were arrested that night and booked into the Cobb County Jail. Each faces two charges of trafficking more than 28 grams of a mixture containing at least 10 percent cocaine.

In addition, Santana is being held by the DEA, while Immigration and Customs Enforcement is detaining Vazquez.

No bail was set for the release of the two suspects, and both remain in jail. It is not clear what led the DEA agents to the arrest, as requests for further information from the DEA were not returned.

Maybe someone should tell MK that Kenwood Creek Apartments isn't in the City so it's not the Mayor's problem.

Yes, there are other people in the country that commit the same kind of crime. But, these two did it in Cobb County. If anyone else, legal or illegal, commits this crime again in the County and gets busted by the cops, then the MDJ will publish their names and faces, too. Everything doesn't revolve around immigration documentation or status.

I'm sorry but there are other people in this country that commit the same crimes every day and they're not all illegal!

Not all illegals are drug dealers, but most drug dealers are illegals. Why do we want to import this crime and filth from that 3rd world hellhole? Why do we continue to allow this invasion?
