A man from Forsyth County was arrested this week after large amounts of methamphetamine were allegedly found in the basement of his parents’ southwest Forsyth home during an operation by the Johns Creek Alpharetta Forsyth County Drug Task Force.

Peter Michael Robinson, 30, was arrested Tuesday when drug task force officers allegedly found three ounces of methamphetamine in the basement of Robinson’s residence on Castlebrooke Crossing Drive in Cumming, according to Cpl. Doug Rainwater of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office. 

Court records show that in 2014, Robinson pled guilty to charges of burglary, theft by taking, cruelty to children and possession of methamphetamine. He was sentenced to five years behind bars and 15 years of probation.

Rainwater said that in April, Robinson was again jailed in Forsyth County after he violated the terms of his parole for previous charges.

Since his release, Rainwater said that drug task force detectives have been investigating the man as a suspected drug trafficker. He said that after Robinson’s release, Robinson allegedly sold methamphetamine to an undercover agent with the drug task force.

Robinson has been charged with two felony counts of trafficking in methamphetamine and one count for the sale of methamphetamine.

He is being held at the Forsyth County Jail under no bond.
