GAINESVILLE — A Cleveland man has been arrested by the Appalachian Regional Drug Enforcement Office, which said he sold a kilogram of methamphetamine per week for the past two years.

David Hawkins was reportedly the subject of a two-year probe by law enforcement.

“The investigation revealed Hawkins had been selling approximately 1 kilogram of methamphetamine a week over the past two years in White, Lumpkin, Dawson, Banks, Jackson, Habersham and Hall Counties,” according to a news release from the drug enforcement office.

Authorities seized about $200,000, a 2014 Ford Tonka Edition F-150, a 2014 Ford Taurus, a 1981 Chevrolet Corvette and 2004 Harley Davidson motorcycle when arresting Hawkins on Monday.

While executing a search warrant, agents also found about 20 ounces of suspected crystal methamphetamine.

The White County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI’s North Georgia Major Offenders Task Force took part in the investigation.
