BEN HILL, GA — Authorities in Ben Hill County launched a drug investigation at the beginning of 2013, targeting methamphetamine traffickers inside the county.
Starting in January, officials targeted Corrinne Gillis as a central part of a methamphetamine trafficking ring, and gained information that she had traveled to Mexico to obtain Crystal-Methamphetamine from various contacts in Mexico.
After contacting immigration and customs enforcement in Brownsville Texas, authorities were able to take Gillis into custody after finding over $600,000 dollars of the illegal drug in her vehicle.
Border agents arrested Gillis and have charged her with federal drug trafficking in Texas. Agents have also identified nine others in association with Gillis in the Ben Hill County area.
