NORTH FORSYTH -- A north Forsyth man was arrested Thursday after 126 marijuana plants -- about $239,000 worth -- were found in a home.

On Thursday, Jan. 12, narcotics detectives conducted a drug search warrant at a residence off Jot Em Down Road, where they found 92 pounds of the schedule-I drug, according to Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.

Norlan Gomez, 39, who rents the house, has been charged with manufacturing, trafficking and possession with intent to distribute.

“Along with the plants, we also found trash bags containing dried green leafy materials suspected of being marijuana,” the sheriff's office said.

It was not immediately clear if he has prior criminal history in the county.

Gomez is currently being held without bond at the Forsyth County Jail.
