Two Forsyth County men found with $7K in meth

NORTHEAST FORSYTH — Two men have been charged in connection with an August drug bust that netted 73 grams of methamphetamine in the extreme northwest corner of Forsyth County.

The seized meth had an estimated value of $7,000 and totaled about 300 to 600 doses, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives and deputies conducted the search, which also led to the seizure of $ 1,191, a .22 caliber rifle, digital scales, packaging materials, a meth pipe, marijuana and a morphine pill, according to an incident report.

As a result of the investigation that began in June, Michael “Big Mike” Alfred Bonnie, 52, was arrested and charged with trafficking in methamphetamine and possession of morphine and marijuana.

He also faces charges of possession of: a firearm during the commission of a felony; a firearm by a felon; and drug-related objects.

Randy Wayne Wallis, 36, was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine and possession of morphine, drug-related objects and a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Both men are being held without bond in the Forsyth County Detention Center, according to Pete Sabella, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office.

Bonnie was initially taken by request to Northside Hospital-Forsyth “due to his extensive medical problems” before being transferred to the jail.
