SHERIFF VICTOR HILL’S Elite Cobra Squad Strikes Again With Large Drug Seizure From A Traffic Stop!

Friday evening members of Sheriff Victor Hill’s elite Cobra Squad Deputies initiated a traffic stop on I-285 near Forest Pkwy in reference to a traffic violation of a 2019 white Dodge Ram rental.  A Sheriff’s K-9 was called and made a positive alert on the vehicle.  A search of the vehicle was conducted resulting in the discovery of approx. 220 lbs of marijuana in a wooden crate on the back of the truck. The driver Mario Pereina Escobedo was arrested for trafficking marijuana, failure to maintain lane, and distracted driving. 


Escobedo is now facing the wall at Georgia’s toughest para-military jail better known as “The Hill-ton”.
