DeKalb officers seize $6,000 in meth, charge 2

Drug Task Force agents were headed to a house at County Road 479 in DeKalb County, Ala., Tuesday to deliver a search warrant when the occupants' car pulled up.

Police searched the car and found $1,300 in cash and uncut, or not processed, methamphetamine worth $6,000 on the street, a news release states.

The couple, 26-year-old Salvador Lopez-Guzman and Brenda Briseida Navarro, 23, both of Boaz, Ala., were arrested and charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of a controlled substance, according to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office.

Guzman and Navarro are being held at the DeKalb County Detention Center. Their bonds had not been set as of late Friday.

"Thanks to the Drug Task Force agents for doing a good job on getting more drugs off the streets and the citizens of the community for calling in tips," Sheriff Jimmy Harris said in the release. "Please keep calling in any illegal activities to the DeKalb County Sheriff Office."
