JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Police arrested a Gwinnett County man June 18 for possession of methamphetamine after they were summoned to the Kroger on Old Alabama Road. 

Police received a call around 6:30 from a woman who said she saw a man enter a car, remove items, then walk away near the Kroger. Police went into the store and found a man who matched the physical and clothing description provide by the caller. 

The suspect was uncooperative with police questioning. After repeated attempts to discover the man’s identity, police placed the suspect in handcuffs. Searching the bag in the suspect’s possession, police found suspected methamphetamine and a glass pipe with residue from the drug. 

Shortly after, a friend of the suspect arrived on the scene. She gave police the name of the suspect and said the car the man had entered was hers and was not an illegal entering auto. 

Police arrested the suspect, Jeremiah Montague, 28 from Lawrenceville, for possession.

The suspect threatened violence and physically resisted police officers continually as the officers attempted to book him, according to the report.
