A Flowery Branch teenager is facing dozens of drug charges after being arrested early Sunday morning.

A release from the Flowery Branch Police Department said officers were called to a home on Victoria Drive around 1:00 a.m. to a noise complaint and found several people gathered around a vehicle parked outside of the home.

An investigation then reportedly found that the vehicle's owner, Justin Velasco, age 18, was in possession of "a quantity of marijuana" along with more than 100 THC vape cartridges and cash. He was arrested and booked into the Hall County Jail without bond.

Velasco is facing 32 counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute as well as other drug-related charges and a charge of Possession of a Firearm or Knife During the Commission of a Crime.
