FORSYTH COUNTY — In a case that could slow the flow of methamphetamine in Forsyth, authorities say three people have been arrested for repeatedly bringing the illegal drug into the county to sell, authorities said.

Cumming residents Hunter Brielle Wortman, 22, and her boyfriend, 29-year-old Robert Wesley Burke, were arrested after a May 28 traffic stop, according to Robin Regan, a spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

Each has been charged with trafficking methamphetamine.

Also arrested was 25-year-old Adam Brandon Hyde of Dawsonville, who was a passenger in the vehicle. He has been charged with possession of meth, according to the sheriff’s office.

All three were on felony probation for possession of meth with intent to distribute, Regan said, though it was not immediately clear when their previous arrests occurred.

Deputies found two bags of suspected meth in the vehicle they stopped. The bags weighed a total of 32 grams, or what authorities said was the equivalent of about 320 doses of meth.

The three are suspected of bringing this amount or more into Forsyth daily for an undisclosed amount of time.

All three are being held without bond at the Forsyth County Detention Center, according to Regan.
