Three purported members of a drug trafficking ring were arrested in Georgia over the weekend, but authorities are still on the hunt for a woman, who is the alleged ringleader of the group.

A probe conducted by a local task force into a drug trafficking ring across Northern Georgia led to three arrests and the seizure of a large stockpile in Duluth.

The Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office collaborated with the Habersham County Sheriff’s Office to arrest Jennifer Bone, 36, and Ronald Jones, 34.

Authorities said they arrested Bone and Jones at a local Circle K store and discovered 56 grams of meth inside their vehicle, 11Alive reported.

Bone was reportedly selling the drugs on behalf of another individual, 40-year-old Tonya Loudermilk, who police are still on the hunt for.

Clues pointed investigators to Gwinnett County, where the Sheriff’s Office carried out a search warrant at her residence.

When they arrived, Loudermilk was nowhere to be found, but they did encounter Derek Lynn Cagley, who was trying to flush 2 kilos of meth down the toilet. He was arrested at the scene.

Police discovered $20,000 at the home. All three suspects have been charged with meth trafficking.

The hunt for Loudermilk is still pending. Once arrested, she will face drug trafficking charges in both Habersham and Gwinnett counties.
