Officers with the Johns Creek-Alpharetta-Forsyth Drug Task Force raided the Suwanee home on the 4800 block of Dartmoor Lane at 4:30 p.m.

While searching the Suwanee home, police said they found undisclosed amounts of marijuana, cocaine, THC wax, MDMA, THC E-Liquid cartridges, Schedule I narcotics, drug-related objects and $4,872 in cash. K-9 officers were on scene to locate the drugs.
The family members are facing various charges, including possession with intent to sell more than an ounce of marijuana, cocaine and Schedule I narcotics. Those are all felony charges in Georgia.
According to an incident report, the drug investigation into the family began on Dec. 5, 2017.

According to property records, the family lived in a 4-bedroom, 4,300 square-foot home just at the edge of a cul-de-sac in the Aberdeen Community in Suwanee. The community features a pool and homes selling at prices between $316,000 and $420,000.
The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office could not release any other details about the case because the investigation is still ongoing.
