Cherokee drug agency makes heroin arrest

Cherokee Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad officials said they arrested an alleged heroin trafficker Tuesday night in Woodstock.

Agents said Chad Nielsen, 22, of Acworth, was collared after he delivered 8.2 grams of heroin to an undisclosed location. Authorities also arrested Christopher Gibson, 29, of Kennesaw at the same time after they said they found a small quantity of heroin on him and a firearm the two men had arranged to sell.

Drug enforcers said they then went to Nielsen’s Acworth home and seized two more guns. Nielsen is charged with heroin trafficking and unlawful gun possession.

Gibson was being held on heroin possession and weapons charges.
