Daniel James Relf of Forsyth County was arrested Thursday, May 3, 2018 after allegedly attempting to sell drugs to an undercover police officer near McFarland Parkway in south Forsyth.

An 18-year-old from south Forsyth has been arrested by authorities from the Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Forsyth County Drug Task Force on multiple felony charges relating to the sale of marijuana.

Daniel James Relf of Forsyth County was arrested Thursday after allegedly attempting to sell drugs to an undercover police officer near McFarland Parkway in south Forsyth, according to Cpl. Doug Rainwater of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

Relf has been charged with three counts for the sale of marijuana, two counts for the sale of a schedule I or II substance, possession of marijuana and the use of an electronic device to sell drugs, Rainwater said.

Rainwater said that Relf was selling e-cigarette or vape cartages of almost pure THC, and selling marijuana by the pound.

The Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Forsyth County Drug Task Force, a law enforcement program split between the three jurisdictions, was put into place in January of 2018 and aims to crack down on drug related crime in the area.

Rainwater said earlier this year that the new program will allow officers from all three agencies to work together in investigating drug dealers and give them the manpower and support to arrest those dealers safely and efficiently.

“Now, we can coordinate drug dealers that do go into Johns Creek and Alpharetta,” Rainwater said.

Relf has been booked into the Forsyth County Jail, and he has no bond as of current publication.
