Bibb Co. arrests four at alleged 'gang house'
News


Bibb County deputies today arrested four people, including a suspect in a recent shooting, at an alleged "gang house."

It happened at 866 Roseview Drive, off Millerfield Road in east Bibb County.

John Edgar, local spokesman for the U.S. Marshals Service, says officers arrested Amond Norwood, a suspect in a shooting last week at 1935 Pinehill Drive. Two men reportedly exchanged gunshots outside a home there.

Norwood is charged with aggravated assault in the case.

The Marshals Service helped Bibb County in the raid this morning.

Edgar says officers also found 5.7 ounces of marijuana, packaged for sale, in "plain view" inside the home, along with two guns.

He said Norwood and three other men will face various drug and gun charges in connection with the raid.

Amond Rashad Norwood, age 19, from Macon, faces charges of Aggravated Assault, Possession of Marijuana with the Intent to Distribute, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, and Participating in Criminal Street Gang Activity.

Chatabeon Montez Gainey, age 28, from Macon faces charges of Possession of Marijuana with the Intent to Distribute, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, Possession of a Firearm by Convicted Felon, and Participating in Criminal Street Gang Activity.

Kenyae Miguel Patterson, age 19, from Macon faces charges of Possession of Marijuana with the Intent to Distribute, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, and Participation in Criminal Street Gang Activity.

Chad Andre Matthews, age 19, from Macon, faces charges of Possession of Marijuana with the Intent to Distribute, Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, and Participation in Criminal Street Gang Activity.

Edgar said investigators described the home as a "gang house" for a group called the East Mafia Family.

Less than a mile away at Pinehill Drive where the shooting occurred, residents are not shocked that the arrests were gang related.

"Robbing and shooting! Every time you turn around somebody is shooting down the road and all kinds of stuff. And we're old people. We ain't got time for that kind of mess" says Robert McCrimon of Pinehill Drive.

He believes the gang violence problem should receive more attention from police.

"Survey this street more, you'll find out who's really doing what they're doing" says McCrimon.

John Edgar at the U.S. Marshals Office says Bibb County Police doing just that.

"This area, there's a lot of gang activity. Bibb County is real good about keeping an eye on gang activity. They are as protective as they can be with gangs" says Edgar.
