An investigation lasting several months has culminated in two arrests and the seizure of a "significant" amount of methamphetamine, said Capt. Gil Slouchick of the Columbus Police Department.

Slouchick, commander of the department's special operations unit, said the 2.91 pounds of methamphetamine is one of largest seizures he can recall here, with a street value of $132,196.

"It is a great conclusion to this investigation," Slouchick said.

Jessica Parsons, 31, and Bradford Ford, 38, were arrested and charged with trafficking methamphetamine, possession and use of drug-related objects, as well as possession, manufacture and distribution of a controlled substance, according to the Muscogee County Jail.

The warrant was served at 2 a.m. Sunday at 7508 Edgewater Drive.

According to Slouchick, also seized at the scene, besides the methamphetamine, was hydrocodone.

Both were arrested without any resistance, said Slouchick. They are scheduled to appear in Columbus Recorder's Court at 9 a.m. today.
