Two pounds of methamphetamine were seized from a suspected drug trafficker at the hands of the Roswell Police Department’s Special Investigations Division Monday.

Authorities said the amount of methamphetamine recovered is estimated to be worth more than $32,000 if sold locally on the street.

According to the Roswell Police Department’s public information officer, Todd Wildermuth, an RPD investigation led special investigation agents to the house of 25-year-old Corry R. Hays, in the 1600 block of North Ohio Avenue.

“Agents went to the house around 11 a.m. Monday to serve a search warrant in relation to their narcotics-trafficking investigation,” Wildermuth said. “Hays would not answer the door or exit the house when police announced they were there with a warrant. The RPD SWAT team was called on to make entry into the house, which it did by breaching the front door.”

Police said Hays was the only person in the house and found hiding behind a door.

Hays was booked into the Chaves County Detention Center Monday and was initially held without bond.
