FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — In what Forsyth County Sheriff's Office narcotics investigators deem as a major hit on drug distributors in the county, five people were charged this week for possession with the intent to distribute LSD, ecstasy, hash and marijuana.

On Monday, July 16, deputies arrested and charged Noah Paul Spicer, 20, of Cumming and Alex M. Robichaux, 19, of Cumming at their townhome apartment complex, 6104 Ivy Summit Court, at Summit Crossing Apartments off Ronald Reagan Boulevard in south Forsyth County. The apartment was rented by Spicer and Robichaux.

All five were charged with one count each of possession of LSD with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of MDMA (ecstasy) with intent to distribute and possession of hash with intent to distribute.

According to Sheriff Ted Paxton, undercover narcotics investigators executed a search warrant at the residence and found LSD, ecstasy, hash and marijuana in "distribution level amounts."

Also found were large quantities of several substances that have still not been identified. These substances, according to Paxton, are being sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab for testing.

"Once the substances are tested, these individuals could face more charges," said Paxton.

"We would consider this a mid-level drug distribution operation, targeted at selling to young people in their late teens and 20s.

"Undercover narcotics investigators were surprised to find such a variety of different types of designer drugs in one place. This is not something we ordinarily see in Forsyth County."

A concern to narcotics investigators are the substances they found that have not been identified.

"We are seeing more and more experimentation with substances that are yet to be identified by authorities," said Lt. Gus Sesam, of the narcotics unit "We don't know what type of effects they may be having on those purchasing and using them."

Sesam referenced the synthetic marijuana substances that persons are continuing to use. "People have no idea what kind of chemicals may be in them and what they could do," Sesam said.

Also found in the residence, where all five of those arrested were living, were scales, baggies and over 100 pipes, some used and some new. Investigators also seized an undisclosed amount of cash.

"We do want to give credit to our citizens for providing us with a tip that led to these arrests," said Paxton. "We appreciate the confidence the citizens have in us to take action and get illegal drugs out of the hands of the distributors. Our narcotics investigators are aggressively following up on any leads the public provides."

    10-15 for soft drugs? Do you really think these kids did any damage to society?

    Regardless, if they're first time offenders, they'll see a few years at most.

    Soft Drugs?
    July 20, 2012 | 04:54 PM

    Since when did LSD become a "soft" drug? Also, I thought distribution of LSD came with a life sentence.

    ...or not. It is said that a community is reflective of the status of its families.

    Well, welcome to the 21st Century where broken homes, single parent households, and unapologetic out of wedlock births are the norm around the nation (in the case of out of wedlock births, even reality shows have spawned like "Teen Mom").

    This is what many in America call "social progress."

    Wanna be thugs?
    September 01, 2012 | 01:50 AM

    How can you judge and assume these people are doing this to be cool? Rob Thomas, thats a very hypocritical and judgemental thing to say these kids might come from troubled homes and the only way they learned how to get by is to sell these drugs. Im not saying what theyre doing is right at all, what i am saying is who are we to judge who these people are. For all we know these could be loving and caring people who are just living a so called "free" lifestyle and are believers in supporting everything the government does not like hippys in the 70's. I am actually not impressed by this arrest. These people are not a threat and will never be. The law enforcement should be cracking down on drugs such as crack, heroine and meth. These are the drugs ruining lives.

    Uncool kids
    May 18, 2013 | 09:21 AM

    I know one is not from a broken home had lots of potential. But it his decision on his way of thinking. You can only do so much when one is strict and one don't care unfortunate for him his decision will face him for life.
    Maybe all these kids need a major wake up call and spend 25 yrs with hard criminals and remember who they sold to and hope no one died from their wanna be cool making drugs. Cause if that happened they could face more charges. Prostitution was not involved which is suprising too. Think there's more that is not uncovered
