FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — On Oct. 29, the Superior Court of Forsyth County awarded the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office a house located in southwest Forsyth County.

The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office filed forfeiture paperwork on the house after the occupants had been arrested numerous times for drug violations that dated back to 1999.

This is the first time in recent memory that a house has been given to the county based on criminal activity, said Forsyth County Sheriff Duane K. Piper.

"We will not tolerate this type of criminal activity within our community," Piper said. "We will continue to use every legal remedy at our disposal to rid our county of criminal elements."

The two occupants of the house were Kelly Bruce Wheeler, 47, and Toni Michelle Armstrong, 32.

Both were arrested in August on possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

Once the home is sold, the county will pay off the mortgage and put the profit back into the sheriff's office budget.

    "...put the profit into the sheriffs budget". does that not bother anyone else? why not invest in parks or something other than more new cars, another new jail, and another new courthouse. disgusting.
