$10K In Illegal Drugs Seized In Carrollton Drug Bust

On Wednesday, two individuals were arrested and a massive amount of illegal drugs were seized as a result of an extensive illegal drug distribution investigation by the Carrollton Police Department’s Aggressive Criminal Enforcement (ACE) Unit.

Mardricus Johnson, 32, and Makia Boyd, 27, both residents of Carrollton, were arrested and are facing multiple charges, including trafficking methamphetamine, trafficking cocaine, trafficking MDMA, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. They are both now being held at Carroll County Jail. 

According to Fox 5 Atlanta, “The arrests were made possible after detectives discovered substantial quantities of cocaine, methamphetamine, and MDMA during the execution of the search warrant. Additionally, approximately 2lbs of marijuana, meticulously packaged for distribution, were confiscated as evidence. The operation also led to the seizure of three firearms, including a Drako pistol, and a significant amount of U.S. currency.”

“Carrollton Police Department praised the diligent work and unwavering commitment of the ACE Unit, whose dedicated efforts over the past several weeks resulted in the dismantling of significant distribution networks and the removal of dangerous weapons from the streets. The agency commends the investigators for their tireless pursuit of public safety,” the outlet added. “The Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Unit (ACE) serves Carroll County and represents a collaborative partnership between the Carrollton Police Department, Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, and the University of West Georgia Police Department.”
