Sheriff deputies in Georgia say they arrested two people and took over 10 pound of heroin, with a street value of over $1.5 million, off of the streets.

Luis Ramirez-Jaramillo and Marco Valdez are in custody at the Rockdale County Jail and have been charged with trafficking heroin, according to officials.

The operation occurred in the parking lot of the Walmart Supercenter at 1436 Dogwood Drive Conyers, Georgia. Following the operation at Walmart, a search warrant was conducted at an address on Fox Chase Court in Conyers where people seized what they called drug money.
