Alpharetta police seized more than 50 grams of meth and 2 grams of cocaine from an Alpharetta couples' home and vehicles.
Officers obtained search and arrest warrants for Jose Carrion and Neida Carolina "Carol" Carrion and their home and vehicles after conducting a controlled buy with a source.
Jose Carrion was arrested during a traffic stop. Two baggies of suspected meth were sitting in between the front passenger seat and center console in plain view. The officer asked Jose Carrion to step out of the car and according to the police report, Carrion stated he did not have a license and told the officer he is an illegal immigrant and is not eligible to obtain the proper paperwork for a driver`s license.

Officers also found 7 grams of meth in pill form and 15 grams of meth in baggies while searching both Carrion vehicles.
During an interview with police, wife Neida Carrion admitted that she and her husband were involved with selling meth. Carrion told police they typically purchase a half to one ounce of math at a time and cut it with a powdery substance called "comeback" which she stated they get from sex shops.
