By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
During a two-day period, Hall County Multi Agency Narcotics (MANS) Agents arrested seven men and confiscated nearly $25,000 in drugs.

The arrests came in five different cases, three Monday and two Tuesday. According to MANS, the drugs involved cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana.

The suspects range in age from 22 to 35.

Two of the seizures involved cocaine. The first was $7200 worth of cocaine authorities said was delivered to the 4800 block of Golden Parkway in Buford on Monday.

24 year old Alex Xavier Billini of Buford is charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Billini had a loaded .45 cal semi-automatic pistol in his waistband during the arrest, according to investigators.

In the same case, 24 year old David Enrique Santiago Irizarry of Norcross was charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute and possession of marijuana.

Also Monday, agents arrested 35 year old Onza Octavious McGhee of Stone Mountain in the 4700 Block of Lanier Islands Parkway.

Hall County Sheriff's Deputies assisted in the arrest that resulted in charges of trafficking cocaine, possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute and use of a communications device to facilitate a drug transaction.

McGhee allegedly delivered $6300 of crack cocaine.

In the smallest seizure of the four, investigators seized about $500 of marijuana. 22 year old Anthony Lamar Poole of Buford is charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and felony possession of marijuana.

One of Tuesday's cases involved two arrests, 28 year old Jonathon Orozco of Flowery Branch and 24 year old Emanuel Rodriguez-Colon of Buford.

Authorities arrested the men in the 3900 block of Mundy Mill Road in Oakwood, seizing methamphetamine worth $2800 on the street. Investigators said Orozco took off on foot, but was arrested shortly after.

Orozco is charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, possession of marijuana and obstruction.

Rodriguez-Colon faces charges of trafficking methamphetamine.

In a second case Tuesday, agents seized cocaine worth about $7800 on the street at a location in the 900 block of Gainesville Highway.

In that case, 22 year old Waldy Duran of Lilburn was charged with trafficking cocaine, possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute, use of a communications device to facilitate a drug transaction and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

All seven suspects were booked into the Hall County Jail.
