After allegedly caught flushing bags of drugs down the toilet, a Forsyth County man was arrested last week after the Johns Creek Alpharetta Drug Task Force executed a drug search warrant at a residence in north Forsyth.

According to a Facebook post by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, local detectives entered a residence on Tallant Road in north Forsyth to execute a drug search warrant on May 14, and immediately encountered a suspect who they believed was attempting to destroy evidence.

“As the detectives entered the house they could hear the toilet being flushed multiple times. At the bathroom door, they encountered Kevin Oliver, who they already secured a warrant for the sale of methamphetamine,” the post states.

Oliver, 38, was taken into custody and even though the suspected drugs had been flushed, the sheriff’s office states that that didn’t stop them from collecting the evidence they needed.

“Not to be outdone, the detectives contacted a local septic tank company to come out and assist,” the post states. “Once the company arrived and the lid was removed from the septic tank, we were able to locate a good quantity of suspected methamphetamine in a sealed plastic bag right at the entrance of where the pipe from the house feeds into the tank.”

In addition to the previous charge for the alleged sale of methamphetamine, sheriff’s office records show that Oliver has also been charged with possession of methamphetamine and tampering with evidence.

Another suspect, Melissa Sizemore, 39, of Forsyth County was also arrested in this incident and has been charged with possession of methamphetamine and drug related objects.

Both Oliver and Sizemore are being held in the Forsyth County Jail and are currently under no bond.
