Suspect in marijuana case will not be prosecuted

by Wes Mayer

The Coweta Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office has decided not to prosecute a man arrested for allegedly distributing marijuana in Coweta County last June.

On April 21, the district attorney’s office decided nolle prosequi – not to prosecute – Joel Auzon for the charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and forgery in the second degree. Auzon was arrested with three other men in June 2013 following an investigation by the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office’s Crime Suppression Unit.

The three other men were Tyler Goldsborough, Michael Preston Cochran and William Blake McCollum. In June, investigators determined marijuana was being sold from a home on the 1400-block of Lullwater Circle, obtained a warrant to search the home and arrested Goldsborough and Auzon.

Inside the home, investigators found around a pound of marijuana, grinders and scales, a loaded handgun and more than $1,500. Three bills, two $10s and a $20, were determined to be counterfeit.

The two other men pulled up to the residence while investigators were performing the search, and they were arrested as well. The case against Goldsborough has not been dropped.
