LAWRENCEVILLE - A Norcross man is wanted for allegedly selling drugs Sunday at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds, according to police reports.
Police received a tip at 12:30 a.m. that someone in the parking lot was waiting for amusement employees to get off work so he could sell them drugs. An officer found a man later identified as Anton Shermal Fooks, 30, and his wife standing next to a car.
After they both gave fake names, the officer patted down Fooks looking for contraband, according to police reports. The officer discovered a plastic bag containing 14 grams of cocaine packaged for sale in smaller baggies in Fook's pocket, according to police reports.

Officers also found an additional bag containing 24 grams of marijuana and 31 grams of another suspected narcotic inside the car.
