Pot smoker on run after arrest in Alpharetta

December 06, 2013
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – One man was arrested and another is on the run after police allegedly found them Nov. 15 smoking marijuana in their car.

According to police, an officer was on patrol in the Pointe at Preston Ridge apartments at 2:48 p.m. when he spotted two people in a parked car with its headlights on. The officer drove by and parked at the entrance to the neighborhood, waiting for the car to come out. It did not, so the officer returned and found the car had moved spots, but still had two people inside.

Speaking with the men, Marquis K. Thompson, 21, of Zion Circle, Roswell, and Mikael Ford, 23, of Executive Drive, Alpharetta, the officer noted the smell of marijuana coming from the car. Both men said there was nothing illegal inside. A search of the car turned up a baggie allegedly containing pot. Both men were arrested for possession of marijuana. When Ford's name was run through police records, it came back with a warrant for his arrest. Ford broke free of police and ran away on foot. He was not found.

    Clearly reading comprehension is your short suit and you should refrain from commentary. They were operating an automobile while and wanted for a warrant and now fleeing. This is not a case to support your desire to smoke dope. Self confessed or not.

    The car was parked and police officer admitted to waiting to catch the people leaving the complex. When they did not leave he went back and confronted the people in the PARKED car.

    People like school teachers take more potent drugs like valiums and xanax and interact with our children. But two people sitting in a car smoking a natural plant is worthy of tax dollars and persecution? I would rather that money goes to education than war on drugs.

    Maybe alpharetta police should look into the spate of heroin overdoses instead of the doobie brothers here.

    I'm sorry it's not a problem with reading comprehension. It's simply an inability to read. But don't give up, sound out the big words. The article is only 12 lines. Had the suspects just left their car and walked away nothing would have happened. The article states the officer waited for the car to drive away. When the officer returned instead the car had moved. Guess the residents of apartments don't need the police protection afforded you when operating an automobile.

    I have smoked pot everyday for 12 years and have an absolutely flawless driving record. I did lose my scholarship to a university while maintaining a 3.9 GPA but engaging in a harmless crime I guess I got what I deserved. I also do not feel the need to criticize people's reading ability because I have nothing important to say. I just pray Milton teacher doesn't use these immature tactics in their classroom.

    Reading comprehension huh? You rebut a false accusation with an even more false accusation? They were not pursued because of a warrant and fleeing. Wait for it, wait for it......they were pursued because they were sitting in a parked car and had their headlights on. Since when is that suspension of wrongdoing? Officer of the year here must be having a field day with all of the rain this past week. I hope there is more to this story.

    Then in your next statement you claim to know what would of happened had the suspects walked away. You may be able to read, but you obviously can't analyze. The officer suspected wrong doing. Were they really going to change their mind if the car didnt actually move? You really arent giving Milton officers much credit. They don't give up that easy. There has to be more to this story on why they were suspects in the first place. Our officers simply don't have time to waste looking for parked cars with headlights on.

    Bubba, What are you talking about? If you read and comprehended the first statement(just 4 lines) it was a comment rebutting the "harmless crime" statement. Driving while intoxicated is illegal. If you are behind the wheel while intoxicated it is illegal whether in motion or not. Additionally, Milton police do not patrol Alpharetta. Your analyzing skills are weak. Thanks for playing.

    Okay, I want all of you to go to neutral corners! If Pot smoking can generate this much discussion with so many different opinions, could you folks please work on other important issues like World Hunger, Protecting our environment, This country's debt, and the cure of cancer. Geez, let's all try to remember we're all in this mess together. Oh yeah, and while you're at it, please pray for those knot-heads in Congress, on both sides of the house!

    "Pot smoker on the run"... hilarious
    December 12, 2013 | 10:36 PM

    We've got rapists, murders, child molesters, and thiefs out there, but damn those pot smokers!

    @Oldster - world "hunger" will never be resolved because of tyrants, our environment is more protected every year with new regulations, and our nation's debt will always exist and only get worse because politicians (especially Democrats) LOVE to spend other people's money for their own special interests under the guise (lie) of being in OUR best interest. Hope that clears things up for you.

    Sill not concerned about Heroin?
    December 13, 2013 | 01:01 AM

    Hi Milton teacher,

    Was this your kid who died? Tell me if where this kid got heroin is less important than these guys smoking a doobie.

    But then again you are probably fine with what happens in closed doors, pedophilia, heroin, incest all good but you don't want to see people smoking pot. God knows how many your kids come high on heroin. But that is ok they are probably brain dead in your boring judgmental classes. Like the bible said let the one without sin cast the first stone. .Hope your sinless life is fulfilling.

    Peace and Happy Holidays.

    Well I realized that I missed reading that moved two spots over. Or maybe I don't believe the cops. Just like I don't believe teachers. Cops are known to fabricate evidence, circumstances to justify their behavior. So they moved the car two spots. Your kids are coming into school high everyday just like they said above. What are YOU doing???? Nothing except looking for people to persecute. Problem with moving to Milton is there aren't enough ethnic people to hate, so you must troll other neighborhoods to make your life seem of value.

    High In Cali.. Where I'm being prescribed the best medical MJ in the world.
