A Gainesville man faces charges of drug trafficking after local authorities found him with 2.2 lbs. of methamphetamine earlier this week.

Hall County Sheriff's Office Lt. Greg Cochran said a short-term investigation involving HCSO investigators and agents with the Hall County Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad ended with Monday's arrest of Marco Jimenez-Benetiz. 

The suspect is being held with no bond at the Hall County Jail, according to online information on the jail inmate population roster.

Cochran said Jimenez-Benetiz was arrested around 7 p.m. on April 5 at a location in the 900 block of Dawsonville Highway. Cochran placed the street value of the meth at approximately $100,000. He said no other arrests are expected.
