A father and daughter of the central of Georgia, were arrested Friday for allegedly running a drug operation in which they targeted the local teenagers for customers, authorities said.

Daniel McGregor Williams III, 51, and his 17-year-old daughter of North Forsyth, Georgia to face numerous drug-related charges, Atlanta, FOX 5 reported.

A few months ago, narcotics agents received a tip that a student from North Forsyth high School was selling marijuana to other students, and later was told that her father was allegedly complicit in the drugs, Forsyth County News reported.

A drug task force raided the Williams’ Forsyth house and a storage unit Wednesday night, the uncovering of more than 85 ecstasy pills, two pounds of marijuana, and $ 22,000 in cash, and FOX 5 reported, quoting of pictures displayed by the enforcement of the law.

Williams and his daughter were held in Forsyth County Jail with no bond. Fox News is withholding the daughter’s name on her age.

The Williams family had been on the authorities’ radar, FOX 5 reported.

In 2015, Elaine Williams – the mother and the woman was arrested for allegedly posting an ad on Craigslist, looking to buy a baby for her then-14-year-old daughter. She was charged with the “own-unauthorized advertising incentive for the adoption of children,” but the indictment was later withdrawn, Forsyth County News reported.

Daniel Williams was recently arrested on suspicion of DUI and possession of prescription pills, police said.
