NORTH FORSYTH -- Two north Forsyth residents have been indicted for a handful of drug charges after deputies found 45 grams of suspected methamphetamine, 69 grams of suspected marijuana, other drugs and about $8,000 in cash in their vehicle during a traffic stop. Christina Marie Atwell and Stephen Butler, both 31 as of their initial arrest, face five counts, including trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of meth and marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug related objects and tampering with evidence, according to a July 11 indictment report. According to initial reports from the Feb. 20 incident, Atwell briefly attempted to elude deputies when they initiated a traffic stop on Dr. Bramblett Road.
