CUMMING - Eight people have been arrested in connection with two separate drug search warrants issued in Forsyth County last week.
According to the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office Facebook page, the searches were conducted at Club Drive in Cumming and Brandywine Circle in Alpharetta in Forsyth County. Both searches yielded methamphetamines.
77 grams of meth were seized at the Brandywine Circle location, as well as one gram of cocaine, four grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, including packaging materials and scales.
"One house we found some meth, but at another house...we found 77 grams so it was obvious they were indeed trafficking meth," said Sheriff's Deputy Doug Rainwater.
