Authorities have arrested two people in connection with what they are calling a “father-daughter drug operation” that allegedly supplied large amounts of marijuana and MDMA to the north Forsyth area.

Daniel McGregor Williams III, 51, and Morgan Christina Williams, 17, both of Cumming, were arrested late Wednesday night after a residence and storage unit in north Forsyth were raided by the Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Forsyth County Drug Task Force, according to Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, Cpl. Doug Rainwater.

Rainwater said for several months narcotics detectives had been investigating Morgan Williams, who is a senior dual-enrolled at North Forsyth High School and UNG, for allegedly selling narcotics to high school students. Through their investigation, they determined that her father was allegedly involved in the operation.

MDMA pills
Pills of suspected MDMA seized by the Johns Creek Alpharetta Forsyth County Drug Task Force during a search at a residence in north Forsyth on Wednesday.

“We believe that they were working together to sell drugs in the Forsyth County area,” Rainwater said.

During the raid, Rainwater said they seized over two pounds of marijuana, 87 MDMA pills, $22,000 in cash and drug packaging materials. 

Morgan Williams has been charged with six felonies, including the sale of marijuana, possession of more than an ounce of marijuana, intent to distribute marijuana, intent to distribute MDMA, tampering with evidence and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug-related objects.

Daniel Williams has been charged with felony counts of intent to distribute MDMA and use of electronic communications to facilitate a drug offense.

Both suspects are in custody at the Forsyth County Jail under no bond.

Rainwater said that both suspects are related to Elaine Sunwoo Williams, a north Forsyth woman who was arrested in 2015 for allegedly attempting to buy a baby off Craigslist for her 14-year-old daughter.

During that incident, Elaine Williams was charged with “domestic-unlawful advertisement inducement for adoption of children,” which was later dismissed. Authorities told the FCN at the time that an unnamed 14-year-old girl related to Williams faced similar charges as a juvenile for the incident.
