NORTH FORSYTH — The alleged gunman in a January drug-related monetary shooting has been indicted on separate charges stemming from an Aug. 2 traffic stop during which authorities seized $15,000 in cash, handguns and a variety of controlled substances.

According to a Forsyth County Superior Court indictment report, 22-year-old Brandon Joseph Huff faces eight charges, including possession with intent to distribute: ethylone; cocaine; alprazolam; codeine; marijuana; and drug-related objects.

He also faces counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and criminal use of an article with an altered identification mark.

According to the indictment, Huff had two handguns while also in possession of illegal drugs. He is accused of knowing the manufacturer’s serial number had been removed from one of the guns, a Bryco .380, “for the purpose of concealing the identity of such article.”

It is the second indictment of the year in Forsyth for the Alpharetta resident.

In January, Huff was identified as the alleged gunman in the non-fatal shooting of a 24-year-old man at a northeast Forsyth home.

According to the sheriff’s office at the time, the resident just happened to answer the door that night and was not the person with whom Huff and three other people were angry.

He was out on bond for those charges when arrested in August.

In September, Huff was indicted on two counts of aggravated battery and one count each of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during a felony for his alleged role in the January shooting.
