DULUTH, Ga. (AP) – Authorities in suburban Atlanta say they’ve discovered cocaine and methamphetamine with an estimated street value of more than $11 million.

Gwinnett County officials say the drugs were stored in a warehouse on Peachtree Crest Drive in Duluth, just northeast of Atlanta. Investigators armed with a search warrant showed up at the warehouse Monday and found 120 kilograms of cocaine with a street value of $3.6 million and 380 pounds of methamphetamine with a street value of $7.6 million.

Last month Cherokee County authorities said they arrested seven people and seized nearly $270,000 in cocaine and methamphetamine and in December 2011 officials say they arrested 45 people and seized more than 4,000 pounds of pot, along with other drugs, guns and cash in a quiet neighborhood in Atlanta.
