Cops: Man with pills, syringes and $1,095 cash arrested in Alpharetta

An Atlanta man was arrested in Alpharetta last week during a traffic stop and charged with resisting arrest and possession of “Schedule II” drugs, police said.

Matthew P. Cutbill, 38, of Mount Vernon Way, was pulled over on the night of May 2 after an officer noticed the car he was driving didn’t match the tags.

According to a police report, an officer pulled Cutbill’s 2007 silver BMW over at 9:02 p.m. at 6551 North Point Parkway. Passenger Lavina Sellers,38, was riding with Cutbill, but she was not detained, police said.

When the officer approached the driver’s side door, Cutbill rolled his window down about two inches, police said. When the officer asked him to roll his window down further so he could see and hear him, Cutbill said it was “rolled down far enough” and he did not have to roll the window down any further.

After the officer asked Cutbill to roll the window down “multiple times” the officer asked him to step out of the car. Cutbill asked if he was being detained, the officer said yes. Cutbill then said he “had his rights” and did not see why he had to step out, according to the report.

Ultimately, another officer arrived on the scene and they pulled Cutbill out of the car, put him on the ground and put him in handcuffs, police said.

While conducting a search of Cutbill, police found three blue oxycodone pills, used syringes and $1,095 in cash in his pockets. Police said there were more syringes found in the back of Cutbill’s car.

After running Cutbill’s information, police discovered he didn’t have a license to drive a car and that he was wanted in Gwinnett County. Online court documents don’t show what Cutbill was wanted for in Gwinnett, but he was sentenced there in 2014 for possession of methamphetamine and carrying a concealed weapon.

Cutbill was transported to the Alpharetta city jail after his arrest.
