FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A recent search warrant led to the discovery of thousands of dollars’ worth of illegal drugs and multiple firearms.

On Feb. 7, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit conducted a search warrant on a home on Bagley Drive.

The unit confiscated thousands of dollars’ worth of methamphetamine and marijuana.

The detectives also recovered multiple illegal firearms. The firearms did not have serial numbers and one firearm recovered had been reported stolen out of the Milton Police Department in December 2016.

Arrested are;

•William Marsh Pruett, 39, was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, sale of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possession of firearms during the violation of Georgia Control Substance Act, possession of schedule III drugs, possession of drug-related objects and theft by receiving a stolen firearm.

•Jason Kyle Bagwell, 43, was charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug-related objects.

Both are in the Forsyth County Detention Center under no bond.

“Keeping with our commitment to impact the drug trade in Forsyth County, I am pleased to announce one of several recent narcotics arrests that are making a difference in our community,” Forsyth Sheriff Ron Freeman said. “We are actively targeting those selling drugs to our youth and most vulnerable. If you are thinking of selling drugs in Forsyth County, get ready to join the likes of (these men). I have no tolerance for drug dealers in our community.”
