A Forsyth County couple who were arrested in 2018 by the Johns Creek Alpharetta Forsyth Drug Task Force have now been formally charged with numerous drug and weapon offenses by the Forsyth County Superior Court.
On Monday, June 10, a grand jury chose to indict Keven Thomas Pope, 43 and Erica Pope, 34, for sale of THC, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, distribution of marijuana, possession of THC with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug related objects.
Keven and Erica Pope were arrested on March 22, 2018 after their residence off Manor Park Drive in north Forsyth was searched by the drug task force, Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Cpl. Doug Rainwater told the Forsyth County News at the time.
Rainwater said that marijuana, THC, cocaine and three firearms were located during the search.
Both Keven and Erica Pope were held in the Forsyth County Jail but later released on bond.
This case will be presided over by Superior Court Judge David L. Dickinson and will be prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney James A. Dunn.
Attorney Ted Cassert, who will represent Keven Pope at trial, stated that he had no comment on the indictment.
Attempts to reach an attorney for Erica Pope were unsuccessful as of press time.
