A Forsyth County woman was arrested on multiple narcotics charges this week after an investigation by the Johns Creek Alpharetta Forsyth County Drug Task Force, authorities say.

Patricia Eleanor Meehan, 51, was taken into custody on Wednesday, Nov. 6, after task force officers conducted a search of her home on Barrett Downs Drive in Forsyth County.

According to a statement from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, task force officers received an anonymous tip that Meehan was selling drugs from her home and an investigation into the tip garnered enough evidence to secure warrants to search the home.

During the search of Meehan’s home on Nov. 6, officers allegedly found a small amount of cocaine, assorted Schedule II pills, a digital scale, drug-related objects and a .22 rifle, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman said on Thursday. 

Investigators also located white powder residue on the home’s master bathroom toilet seat, bathroom floor area and within the toilet, during the search. 

Meehan has been charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, manufacture/delivery/distribution of controlled substances, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of drug- related objects and tampering with evidence. 

She has been booked into the Forsyth County Jail and is being held under no bond.
