Two illegal aliens living in Georgia, one from Mexico and one from El Salvador, were arrested Friday morning after police served an arrest warrant and found nearly 75 pounds of cocaine in their Cobb, Ga., home.

“Carlos Arturo Villegas Silva, 22, is charged with drug trafficking and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and Jorge Salvador Pineda, 30, is charged with giving a false name or date of birth,” said The Marietta Daily Journal. 

The report said that both men have “holds from the U.S. Department of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement on their booking sheets, indicating they may be eligible for deportation.”

The men were arrested on the same day as another illegal alien living in North Carolina, who was busted with 10 pounds of cocaine after a routine traffic stop.

Big League Politics reported:

An illegal alien was caught in Iredale County, North Carolina Friday with nine pounds of cocaine.

“Eyian Valenti Robotham, 53, was arrested after deputies noticed discrepancies in the information he provided during the traffic stop near mile marker 65,” said WBTV.

Robotham, who was living in Atlanta, was stopped on I-77 for a traffic violation while reportedly transporting the drugs to Alabama. When police searched his vehicle, they found “four kilogram-sized packages with 8.8 pounds of cocaine inside of them.” The drugs have a street value of $400,000.

Further investigation found that Robotham is living in the United States illegally. The Department of Homeland Security placed a detainer on him, which means he will likely face deportation proceedings once his criminal matter is resolved.

“Robotham has been charged with felony trafficking a schedule II narcotic by possession, felony trafficking a schedule II narcotic by transportation and felony maintaining a vehicle for controlled substances,” the report said.
