An Acworth man who was arrested on forgery and drug charged told Alpharetta police he "figured something was up" when a woman with whom he traded drugs for sex asked him to cash a check but wouldn't enter the bank with him.

Police found the suspect where he worked at Hudson Grille, hiding in the cooler with his face to the wall. After he was taken into custody and away from the scene, a restaurant employee told police a syringe was found inside the cooler. Police retrieved the syringe, which contained what was suspected to be heroin.
