A North Georgia man has been arrested for smuggling drugs.

Forty-nine-year-old Diego Fernando Ocampo-Lasso is facing several charges.

Police pulled him over after he failed to stop at a weigh station on I-75 in Catoosa County.

After searching his truck, officers found a large amount of prescription and non-prescription drugs, which are believed to have been smuggled into the U.S. from Mexico.

Investigators believe the suspect has been delivering the medication to different businesses.

In addition to the pills, officers seized 10-thousand dollars in cash.
