Incident reports from the sheriff's office

Fraudulent prescription filed at local Kroger

Forsyth County authorities are searching for one suspect for allegedly attempting to fill a fake prescription at a pharmacy in south Forsyth. 

According to an incident report from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, on March 14 the pharmacist of the Kroger at 1595 Peachtree Parkway reported to authorities that an older black male brought in a prescription for 300 CCs of Phenergan with Codeine, which staff believed to be fraudulent. 

Deputies responding to the pharmacy confirmed that the names on the prescription and the doctor’s name were both invalid.

The report stated that deputies waited at the store for more than an hour for the suspect to return to the store, but he never returned. 

Speakers stolen from local church 

Staff of a local church reported that at least six speakers were stolen from the campus early in March. 

According to an incident report from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, on March 21 deputies responded to the New Life Church in response to reports that six speakers valued at $1,500 had been stolen from the church. 

No other damage was reported to the church buildings, and no suspects readily were available to deputies. 

Tent business broken into overnight

On March 20, the owners of a south Forsyth tent business reported to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office that at 10:30 p.m. the previous evening, someone had cut through a lock on their chain link fence and attempted to steal a trailer worth $16,000. 

According to an incident report filed by the sheriff’s office, deputies responding to the business could see on the surveillance footage that an SUV pulled up at the property at about 10:20 p.m., and its driver, a tall, thin male cut the lock on the fence with a tool from his truck. 

The report stated that the suspect then backed his vehicle directly up to one of three trailers parked inside the fence and attempted to lower the trailer onto a trailer hitch. 

“The subject returned to the AR-Flow trailer and spent another moment trying to attach the trailer before giving up. The subject drove back through the gate, closing it behind him, and left the property,” the report stated. 

The report stated that the business owners were not able to identify who the suspect was.
