Asheville, NC (FOX Carolina) – Detectives with the Buncombe County Anti-Crime Task Force have arrested two men in one of the largest-weight drug busts in the sheriff’s office’s history.

The sheriff’s office says Rogelio Guiterrez and Marcos Liquidano, both from Atlanta, Georgia were arrested on July 15 while in possession of almost 8 and a half pounds of methamphetamine.

Buncombe County Sheriff Quentin Miller had the following statement:

“Thank you to our BCAT team for a series of high-level Methamphetamine and Fentanyl trafficking arrests over the past 6 weeks. The Sheriff’s Office and BCAT will continue to target drug traffickers, violent criminals and those in possession of illegal firearms. We are targeting those who do the most damage while trafficking drugs in our community. Let me be clear, BCAT is focused on high-level trafficking, not possession arrests for users. The arrests of Mr. Gutierrez and Mr. Liquidano which has resulted in taking nearly 4 kilos of meth off the streets of Buncombe County is a win for our community.”
