A 911 caller’s concern about a person vomiting near his car lead Marietta police to two alleged drug dealers.
Police were called Thursday to the 20 block of Atlanta Street in reference to a medical call, spokeswoman Officer Brittany Wallace said. The 911 caller said a man was sitting in his car vomiting.
Officers saw Alex Leon-Colberg and Micheal Vliek sitting in a Ford Fusion at a parking lot, Wallace said. When police went to question Vliek, he ran to a Honda Odyssey van and drove off. Wallace said a woman he knew was also inside of the car.
Leon-Colberg told police he was there to pick up a friend after work. He let officers search his car, which had several drugs and a gun inside.
He was arrested and faces multiple drug charges. Police also charged him with obstruction of law enforcement.
Leon-Colberg remains in the Cobb County jail.
Police are still looking for Vliek. His last known location was near Columbus.
