Authorities arrested one suspect and were looking for two others in unrelated drug cases late last week.

Michael Thomas Bolin, 20, of 225 Nancy Lane in the Willows Apartments in Cumming was arrested Wednesday by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of ecstasy.

A jail spokeswoman said Bolin was still in custody Friday at the Forsyth County Detention Center. His bond was set at $12,265.

Friday, authorities were also looking for 44-year-old Mickey Gravitt and 40-year-old Christina Croy of 5825 Riley Road in Cumming.
Sheriff’s Investigator Scotty Spriggs said both faced multiple charges including possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

Spriggs said Gravitt, also wanted for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and on probation for past drug charges, could have been armed.

Spriggs said undercover investigators purchased drugs from the couple at their home as part of a month-long probe into their activities.

Authorities, using a search warrant, entered the home Monday in an attempt to arrest Gravitt and Croy, but they were gone.
“During the search we found a firearm, 10 to 12 grams of methamphetamine and some marijuana,” Spriggs said.

Money suspected of being used to buy the drugs was also recovered.

Spriggs said authorities waited for the couple, but they never returned. He said he thinks family members who live in the area may have tipped them off.

Bolin’s arrest came after undercover investigators bought drugs from him at his residence, authorities said.

Spriggs said authorities searched Bolin’s apartment after obtaining a warrant and found about an ounce of marijuana and several ecstasy tablets.

“This was good police work,” Spriggs said. “We knew about him from observing his activities.”

Spriggs said at the time of the arrest, Bolin was wearing an ankle monitor because he is on probation for non-drug-related charges.

Anyone with any information regarding Gravitt’s or Croy’s whereabouts is asked to call the sheriff’s criminal investigations division at (770) 781-2200. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (770) 888-7308.
