September 10, 2012FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Two men were arrested after Forsyth County Sheriff's deputies recovered several stolen items from their car.
Ashley Thompson, 18, of Sugar Hill and Michael Pitts, 18, of Sugar Hill were arrested and charged with five counts of entering an auto, four counts of weapon possession, loitering and prowling and burglary. Thompson is being held without bond, and Pitts is held with a bail of about $50,000.
About 4 a.m. Aug. 31, deputies noticed a Red GMC Sierra pick-up truck parked behind Forsyth Pharmacy, 3590 Old Atlanta Road, Suite 150 in Suwanee. The pharmacy had been burglarized in the last couple of months, so the deputy wanted to investigate.
When the truck left the pharmacy, a deputy pulled over the suspicious car and questioned the driver and passenger. After surveying the car, a deputy found a large black bag that contained a Louis Vuitton purse with a wallet and credit cards belonging to a woman.
Also inside the truck, there was a cellphone, an iPod with several power cords and ear phones, $100 and a large amount of coins.
The deputies also found a handgun on the rear seat floor with a black holster and full magazine, along with an additional $291 and two more plastic bags filled with coins.
Thompson and Pitts were arrested and taken to Forsyth County Detention Center for processing.
