According to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office incident report filed May 8, 2018, deputies stopped a silver Chevrolet truck at the intersection of Hwy. 53 and Knight Road and found two passengers.

The driver of the vehicle allegedly told deputies that he had purchased the vehicle a few months ago, despite the fact that an insurance card showed that insurance had been bought for the vehicle in November 2017. 

“While speaking with [the driver] at the driver’s door, I smelled an odor of marijuana coming from the inside of the vehicle,” the report states.

After being asked by deputies several times if there was any marijuana in the vehicle, the driver allegedly admitted that he had a “one hitter” marijuana pipe in the vehicle’s center console.

Upon a search of the vehicle, a “fake” $100 bill and a license plate belonging to the vehicles previous owner were found.

The deputy then arrested the driver of the truck, citing that the driver “admitted he knew” the fake bill was in his vehicle and knew “it was a fake $100 bill.”

The driver was charged with forgery, possession of marijuana, possession of drug related objects and driving with an expired license, and was booked into the Forsyth County Jail.
