Authorities say that two individuals suspected of drug trafficking were arrested early this week after they allegedly fled a traffic stop on Ga. 400 on Monday night.
Anthony David Davenport, 47, of the city of Forsyth, and Angela Leigh Ertzberger, 45, of Dahlonega, were taken into custody at about 9 p.m. on Monday, after a Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office deputy observed a vehicle traveling south on Ga. 400 with an “improper cover on their license plate that made the plate not visible” and initiated a traffic stop.
The vehicle, driven by Davenport and Ertzgerber, allegedly refused to stop for the deputy, fleeing down Ga. 400, before turning onto Settingdown Circle and coming to a stop near Church Road.
After Davenport and Ertzgerber were taken into custody during the felony traffic stop, deputies allegedly located a rifle, BB gun pistol, cocaine, methamphetamine and packaging materials within the vehicle.
Davenport has been charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, fleeing or attempting to elude a felony offense, obscured or missing license plate and improper passing on shoulder.
Ertzgerber has been charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute.
Both individuals were transported to the Forsyth County Jail where they are being held under no bond.
