A Gadsden man is charged with drug trafficking and other charges after his arrest earlier this month, according to Etowah County Drug Enforcement Unit Commander Randall Johnson.

Fernando Lourenco Miliner, 46, is charged with drug trafficking, first-degree possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

On Aug, 2, agents executed an outstanding arrest warrant on Miliner for the drug trafficking charge. Following the arrest, he was found in possession of about 248 grams of methamphetamine, a quantity of marijuana and about $1,358 in U.S. currency, Agent Stephen McGlathery said in a press release.

Miliner was jailed on $353,000 cash bond. At the time of his arrest, he was out on bond for drug trafficking, three counts of possession of a controlled substance and second-degree theft of property.

The investigation is ongoing and Miliner could face additional state and federal charges related to the drugs seized.

The Gadsden Police Department, Alabama National Guard Counterdrug Program and FBI Safe Streets Task Force also participated in the case.
