ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

Drug agents from Limestone and Madison Counties worked together to confiscate more than 100 pounds of marijuana.

Drug dogs sniffed out the drugs in the back of a pickup truck at a suspected drop location. The bundles containing 132 pounds of mid-grade marijuana was packed in boxes in the back of the truck.

Agents didn't pinpoint where the drugs, valued at $125,000, came from, but authorities believe it was a recent load from the Southeast.

Authorities arrested Agapito Peter Gomez who they said was making a drop. They are still looking into who he was meeting at the drop location.

Gomez was released from jail after serving time for drug charges in February, and was deported. He reentered the country and stayed involved in drug activity, according to officials.

Gomez was booked into the Limestone County jail.
