Deputies say traffic stop interrupts meth pipeline from Atlanta

CHATSWORTH, Georgia (WDEF) – The Murray County Sheriff’s Office says a traffic stop last week interrupted a meth shipment from Atlanta to northwest Georgia.

Officers had the vehicle under surveillance for several hours before they stopped it.

They say they found almost seven pounds of meth in the vehicle, along with other drug items, a 9mm Springfield pistol, and $3,540 in cash.

Investigators say 25 year old Zachary Austin Manis from Dalton was bringing the drugs from Atlanta to both Whitfield and Murray Counties.

They also charged 27 year old Derik Ramsey Sifford of Knoxville who was in the vehicle.
