Police in Marietta are crediting an observant citizen with helping them arrest one drug dealer and identify another.

The citizen reportedly called police after he saw a man vomiting from the driver side of a vehicle along Atlanta Street the afternoon of February 23.

When officers arrived on the scene, they said they found Alex Leon-Colberg was the person vomiting from the vehicle. His passenger, Michael Vliek fled the scene after police began to question him and got into a car with a woman police said was known to him.

Leon-Colberg was taken into custody after police found drugs and a gun inside his vehicle. They took him into custody on the scene.

Vliek remains on the loose, wanted on charges he intended to distribute marijuana, and trafficked methamphetamine, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a felon as well as hindering/obstruction of law enforcement.

Police said his last known location was Columbus.
