(Forsyth County, GA) Here’s a look at recently released reports from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office:

Methamphetamine possession

On July 2, a deputy noticed a Jeep Grand Cherokee traveling on Ga. 400 near Pendley Road with no license plate.

The deputy initiated a traffic stop.

The officer said the driver, Erwin Gazka, acted impaired.

“During the investigation, I also learned he had no driver’s license. Upon completing my investigation, I believed he was impaired by a combination of substances to the extent he was less safe, and I placed him under arrest. The officer searched the vehicle and discovered a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine in his wallet.

Gazka, 35, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, operation of an unregistered vehicle, DUI, and no license.

Marijuana possession

On July 1, an officer noticed a Subaru traveling on Ga. 400 using fog lights but no headlights. The officer stopped the vehicle and contacted the driver, Victoria Guerrero.

The officer noticed a faint odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

“I conducted a DUI investigation, during which she admitted that there was marijuana and other contraband in the vehicle. Upon completion of my investigation, I believed she was impaired by a drug to the extent she was less safe to operate the vehicle. I took her into custody,” the officer wrote.

The officer searched the vehicle and located a bag that contained marijuana, a "Jolly THC Gummies" jar that contained marijuana, an Excedrin pill bottle that contained marijuana, a glass bong that had burnt marijuana residue in it, five cigar splitters, a vape pen that had a cartridge on it that contained a gold viscous liquid consistent with THC oil, and an unknown pink crystalline substance.
