Four people were indicted this week for allegedly trafficking more than $1 million worth of cocaine and other drugs out of a Lawrenceville pawn shop. Two owners of Hometown Title Loan at 3195 Lawrenceville Highway are accused of being at the heart of the drug smuggling operation.
Jerry Lane Farley, 54, of Conyers and Jerry Allen Rogers, 58, of Lilburn, were arrested in February and charged with multiple drug trafficking and possession offenses. Two other men, 20-year-old Elvis Joel Sanchez of Lawrenceville and 26-year-old Carlos Gomez-Alonzo of Atlanta, are charged with similar crimes.
Inside the pawn shop, police found 13 kilograms of cocaine valued at $1.3 million, 6 ounces of crystal methamphetamine worth $16,000 and 30 grams of marijuana worth $300. They also confiscated $14,655 in cash and a pistol.
