PEARSON, GA (WALB) –Federal drug agents with Immigration and Customs Enforcement made a marijuana bust and eight suspects were arrested Wednesday afternoon in the Atkinson County.

ICE agents followed a truck to the Fussell Mobile Park after they witnessed a suspected drug deal in the Harvey's shopping center around 4:30.

They found 50 pounds of marijuana in the truck's tool box.

Atkinson County investigators stopped a gray car involved in the deal and found a half pound of marijuana.

Agents seized six cars and booked eight hispanic men into the Atkinson County Jail.

They're not sure of the identities of those suspects yet.
