Two charged in Forsyth County for alleged drug trafficking, weapons
Forsyth County Sheriff's Office

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.
