Forsyth County News

Authorities have arrested a couple they say sold drugs to teenagers.

Michael Mallin, 21, and Virginia Harrison, 20, both of Wood Falls Drive, have each been charged by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of more than an ounce of marijuana.

Their other charges includes possession of methamphetamine and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

They remain in the Forsyth County Detention Center, each on $55,400 bond, a jail spokeswoman said.

Sheriff’s Investigator Derek Bleisath said the couple was arrested Thursday night as the result of a monthlong investigation.

“We recovered about a pound of marijuana, a Glock 19 pistol, pipes, digital scales and clear plastic baggies,” Bleisath said.

Sheriff’s Lt. Col. Gene Moss said authorities had previously made an undercover drug deal with the couple at the south Forsyth home they shared with family members.

The house had been under surveillance.

“There was a considerable amount of evidence recovered to reflect a pretty sizeable operation,” Moss said. “It appears he had been selling to high school and college-age kids."

Moss said authorities know Mallin, who has been described as a “mid-level supplier,” had been dealing quantities large enough for teens to sell.
