Only on 3: Patrol car video of Harris Co. drug bust

Posted: Updated:
HARRIS COUNTY, Ga. - More than half a dozen people have been arrested in what local law enforcement is calling one of the largest meth busts in history.

Last month, Harris County deputies say they pulled over a white Chevy Impala that had stolen plates. Inside the car deputies say they found a gun, more than $5,000 and about a pound of meth. 

The driver, 29-year-old Angela Nash of Grantville, Georgia and 31-year-old Andrea McInally of Southport, Florida were arrested. Deputies say McInally was a look-out for Nash and say the two were headed to Panama City Beach with the drugs.

Deputies didn’t stop there. They say the drugs came from Meriwether County, so a few days later they set up a controlled sale in Greenville.
30-year-old Tiffany Jackson, and her husband 39-year-old Harlan Jackson and their brother 38-year-old Christopher Jackson were arrested. Deputies say they found $100,000 worth of crystal meth and more than $8,000 inside their house.

Deputies also arrested two men they say supplied the drugs- 33-year old Elmer Ochoa and 29-year-old José Lopez. Authorities believe they part of the Mexican Cartel.
