MONROE COUNTY, Ga. — The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office is touting the disruption of a major meth ring and the arrest of a drug “queen pin” along with dozens of others.

With help from the U.S. Marshals Service and officers from the Georgia Department of Community Supervision, investigators and deputies made the arrests as part of “Operation No Doze” which involved a combination of traffic stops, search warrants and electronic surveillance.

The surveillance was what led to the arrest of Jayna Marie Forbus, dubbed Monroe County’s “Queen Pin” by the sheriff’s office. As part of the investigation, detectives scoured more than 17,000 phone calls and texts in a span of 21 days.

Forbus and her alleged co-conspirators are accused of operating a distribution ring pushing crystal meth, marijuana, ecstasy and hydrocodone.

They were also charged with possession of stolen or altered items including firearms and possession of drug-related objects.

All told, the seizure of marijuana, ecstasy and over half a kilogram of crystal meth were valued at about $55,000.  Several vehicles were also seized as part of asset forfeiture.

Forbus was arrested on numerous charges including 91 counts of using a communication device to facilitate a drug transaction, 61 counts of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, 14 counts of conspiracy to traffic methamphetamine, five counts of conspiracy to distribute marijuana, three counts of conspiracy to possess marijuana, two counts of conspiracy to possess Schedule II narcotics, one count of trafficking methamphetamine and one count each of possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and ecstasy.
