2 men arrested after $3 million worth of meth seized in Raleigh

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Two Charlotte men have been arrested and charged after authorities said they seized more than 24 pounds of methamphetamine from them, worth about $3 million on the street.

Police said 37-year-old Mario Alberto Llamas-Hernandez and 23-year-old Gonzalo Alberto Hernandez were charged with trafficking methamphetamine.

Officials said the two were stopped by the Wake County Sheriff's Office on Poole Road in Raleigh.

According to an arrest warrant, Gonzalo Hernandez "willfully and feloniously" used a pickup to keep and sell the drugs, which is in violation of the North Carolina Controlled Substances Act. He's facing an additional charge for that.

Llamas-Hernandez was arrested without a warrant but is accused of transporting 400 grams or more of meth.
