Drugs Found in Gray Man's Car

 

A Gray man was arrested by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office after a traffic stop on I-75 on May 12.

That's according to a Monroe County Sheriff's Office news release.

David Moore, 54, was driving southbound on I-75 when a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputy noticed that he was not wearing a seatbelt. The deputy stopped the car, ran Moore’s driver’s license and the license came back suspended. The deputy arrested Moore for driving on a suspended license.

While doing an inventory of Moore’s red Honda Del Sol, glass pipes used for smoking meth were found as well as a small amount of marijuana.

The deputy noticed several items in the trunk of the vehicle that he suspected were used for manufacturing methamphetamine and made a request for assistance from the Forsyth-Monroe County Drug Task Force.

Canine Killers on the Loose?

Two Monroe County families say a dog killer is on the loose after their family pets were found dead in a pile over 10 miles from their neighborhood.

Chris Burkett, 36, of 60 Orchard Ridge Road, Forsyth, said he and wife Tammy noticed their two miniature schnauzers, Mollie and Tucker, were missing last Tuesday, Feb. 22. The dogs wore shock collars that kept them in an electric fence, and the Burketts had just changed the batteries. Their neighbors, Robbie and Casey Fleckenstein of 260 Orchard Ridge Drive, also noticed their aged yellow lab, Fleck, was missing.
