The DEA told WSB-TV that this is one of the biggest meth busts ever in Gwinnett County in suburban Atlanta.

The meth -- with a street value of around $2 million -- was concealed inside 500 wax figurines.

Robert Murphy, the special agent in charge of the DEA, says the figures were shaped like Disney figures, but there is nothing family-oriented about them.

Murphy said the meth originated in Mexico and was destined for Atlanta.

Another load containing legitimate ceramic figurines was intercepted. It’s believed that was intended as a decoy, Murphy said.

The investigation is ongoing.
