Two Monroe Murder Suspects Charged in Pawn-Shop Break

Two Macon teens, already charged in a Monroe County double -homicide, now also face charges in a pawn-shop break-in three weeks earlier.

On April 24, someone drove a truck into Macon Pawn and Gun on Mercer University Drive and stole 10 pistols.

Three weeks later, two men, Russell Jacobs and James Pittman,  were murdered at a Monroe County home.

Four Macon teens -- Sameeria Rikiea Carter, 16, Marquez Deshawn Martin, 19, Jordan Keaugh Maxwell, 18, and 17-year-old Dave'von Sapp -- were charged with murder in the case.

Investigators say the four met the victims at a north Bibb County gas station, gave them a ride home, then shot them and robbed the house.

On Wednesday, Macon police said Martin and Maxwell were also responsible for the April 24 break-in at the pawn shop. A Macon police news release said they and two others were charged after an anonymous Crimestoppers tip.

Also charged in the pawn-shop case:

17-year-old Marquincio Antwun Simmons, charged with armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime; auto theft, kidnapping with bodily injury, aggravated assault and burglary. He is in the Bibb County jail.

17-year-old Shacor Nyon Brinson-Lamptey; charged with burglary. He was released on bond.

Martin and Maxwell remain in the Monroe County jail.

Monroe County officials did not return our phone calls about possible connections between the two cases.
