Forsyth County Sheriff's Office

Two individuals from Lawrenceville have been arrested and charged by the Johns Creek Alpharetta Forsyth County Drug Task Force after they allegedly made several narcotics transactions with undercover agents in Forsyth County.

According to Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Cpl. Doug Rainwater, Blake Aaron Overly, 24, and Katherine Abigail Daniel, 18, are accused of running a criminal narcotics enterprise, distributing methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin and LSD in the Forsyth County and north Fulton County areas.

Overly was arrested in Forsyth County on Jan. 2 after he allegedly sold narcotics to task force agents on four separate occasions.

Daniel allegedly participated in some of the transactions but was not taken into custody until Jan. 8, when Forsyth County deputies served a warrant at her residence in Lawrenceville.

Rainwater said the pair were initially identified as possible illegal weapon distributors in addition to their alleged narcotic activity, but no firearm sales were involved during this incident.

Overly has been charged with four counts for possession, purchase or manufacture of a schedule I or II control substance, possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime and possession of drug-related objects.

Daniel has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, cocaine and schedule I or II controlled substances with intent to distribute.

As of Wednesday night, both were held in the Forsyth County Jail under no bond.
