On Thursday, May 15, GMTF investigators went to a Snellville home to follow up on a tip which indicated there were drugs in the Hidden Lane residence. While at the house, investigators noticed a strong odor of marijuana and obtained a search warrant. During the subsequent search, investigators seized 414 marijuana plants and arrested Michael Gerrard Brown, a Dacula resident who leased the home.
Additional information obtained by investigators led them to Brown's primary home in Dacula. Investigators obtained a search warrant for the Overlook Hill Pass home and discovered a marijuana grown room which had been partially dismantled. Investigators also located a small amount of loose marijuana and other suspected narcotics inside the Dacula home.
Brown was booked into the jail on three counts of possession/manufacture of marijuana with intent to distribute, one count of trafficking in marijuana and a single count of trafficking marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school. According to a GMTF press release, additional charges and/or arrests are expected as the investigation continues.
The Gwinnett Metro Task Force is comprised of deputies from the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office and officers from Lilburn Police Department, Lawrenceville Police Department, Snellville Police Department, Duluth Police Department, and Suwanee Police Department.
