Four arrested for trafficking, drugs in Forsyth County

Four suspects were taken into custody by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office late last week and have been charged with trafficking in illegal drugs, drug possession and tampering with evidence. 

Sheriff’s office records state that the suspects were taken into custody at 11:30 p.m. April 4, at a residence off Bannister Road in north Forsyth.

According to jail records, John Michael Kiertekles, 30, of Suwanee, Rory Michael Shields, 30, of Flowery Branch and Brittany Michelle Massie, 27, of Marietta, have been charged with trafficking in illegal drugs and possession of drug related objects.

Thomas Anthony Johnson, 30, of Cumming has been charged with possession of methamphetamine. 

Additionally, Massie has been charged with felony tampering with evidence.

A sheriff’s office spokesperson could not be reached for further information on the circumstances of these charges or what precipitated the arrests. 

Forsyth County Court records state that in 2013 Kiertekles was convicted of violating the Georgia Controlled Substances Act, tampering with evidence, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer.

Records also show that in 2011, Shields was charged with felony possession of methamphetamine in Forsyth County.

Currently, Kiertekles, Shields and Massie are being held in the Forsyth County Jail without bond, while Johnson is detained under a bond of $11,130.
