A south Forsyth man was recently arrested and charged with seven felony drug offenses after Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office narcotics detectives found nearly 40 pounds of marijuana and suspected drug-laced gummy bears, among other narcotics, in his home.
Christopher Walker, 34, was arrested Oct. 3 after detectives executed a search warrant on the south Forsyth home, according to Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office.
“The narcotics unit recovered from the home oxycodone, amphetamine, 38.99 pounds of marijuana, large amounts of THC oil know as ‘wax’ or ‘dabs,’ $63,440 in cash, three assault rifles and two handguns,” he said. “Disturbingly, we also recovered several bags of suspected drug-laced gummy bears found alongside children’s treats in the refrigerator.”
Rainwater said Walker’s girlfriend, along with a 5- or 6-year-old child, lived in the home with Walker.
