MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  The Moultrie-Colquitt County Drug Enforcement Team says drug activity is high both in the county and city.

In the last two weeks, the squad has busted several locations seizing Cocaine, Marijuana, and Meth. Cocaine is one of the biggest problems followed closely by Meth. Agents say they need the community to alert them to suspicious activity.

"Visitors staying there a short amount of time, of course a high volume of foot traffic or vehicle traffic, houses keeping late hours at night during what a normal person would have to be at work the next day, these houses usually stay open all night long," said Commander Steve Exum, Moultrie-Colquitt County Drug Enforcement Team.

Agents say the change in the law limiting the sale of Pseudoephedrine has helped. They also work closely with area stores selling the ingredients to make Meth.
