Authorities have arrested two people in connection with what they are calling a “father-daughter drug operation” that allegedly supplied large amounts of marijuana and MDMA, or ecstacy, to the North Forsyth County area.
Daniel McGregor Williams III, 51, and Morgan Christina Williams, 17, both of Cumming, were arrested late Wednesday night after a residence and storage unit in north Forsyth were raided by the Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Forsyth County Drug Task Force, according to Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, Cpl. Doug Rainwater.
Rainwater said narcotics detectives had been investigating Morgan Williams, a senior dual-enrolled at North Forsyth High School and University of North Georgia, over several months for allegedly selling narcotics to high school students. After an investigation, the Task Force determined her father was involved in the operation, Rainwater said.
“We believe that they were working together to sell drugs in the Forsyth County area,” Rainwater said.
During the raid, Rainwater said they seized more than 2 pounds of marijuana, 87 MDMA pills, $22,000 in cash and drug packaging materials.
Morgan Williams has been charged with six felonies, including the sale of marijuana, possession of more than an ounce of marijuana, intent to distribute marijuana, intent to distribute MDMA, tampering with evidence and one misdemeanor count of possession of drug-related objects.
Daniel Williams was charged with felony counts of intent to distribute MDMA and use of electronic communications to facilitate a drug offense.
Both are being held at the Forsyth County Jail with no bond.
