5 indicted in 2 drug trafficking cases

A Fayette County grand jury has indicted three men for trafficking in methamphetamine after undercover drug agents found about three pounds of methamphetamine in a home in northwest Fayette County June 11.

Bernal Gerson Villafan and Uvaldo Alvarado Tequila, both of 385 Greenview Circle, Fayetteville where the incident took place and Ismael Guerrero Moya of Dade City, Fla., were charged with trafficking in methamphetamine. Moyo also was charged with possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

The firearm charge stems from the agents discovering a loaded 9mm handgun with an arm’s reach of the suspects during the bust, according to the indictments.

In a separate incident, two men have been indicted for trafficking heroin after undercover drug agents found approximately 7 grams of the narcotic in their vehicle in May.

Glenn Parks Summerlin of 255 Burch Road, Fayetteville and Thomas Glen Summerlin of Ga. Highway 85, Riverdale are both charged with trafficking in heroin and possession of cocaine.

Glenn Parks Summerlin is also charged with possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana (less than one ounce) and failure to maintain lane.

The heroin was wrapped in a tin foil packet and weighed above the threshold for which a trafficking charge can be made, which is four grams.

Both arrests were made by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office Tactical Narcotics Team which consists of deputies and also law enforcement from other agencies including the Fayetteville, Peachtree City and Tyrone police departments.

An indictment is not evidence of guilt but it is a signal by the grand jury that there is enough evidence for the case to proceed to adjudication in Fayette County Superior Court.
