Warrant issued for man charged in massive Mitchell meth bust

Posted: Updated:

An arrest warrant is issued for a Mitchell man involved in a large meth bust after he failed to appear in county court this morning.
 
27-year-old George Valles has been charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

This morning Valles was a no-show for his preliminary hearing.

Earlier this month, investigators found more than 18 ounces of meth during a search of his home.  That's more than 510 grams.

Valles was initially arrested on lesser charges and given a bond of $50,000, which he later posted.
 
Today judge James Worden issued Valles a bench warrant for failure to appear.  Worden also increased the bond to $500,000, stating 'failure to appear' and 'substantial increase of charges' as reasons.
