A fifth suspected member of the “Zohannon” gang was arrested Wednesday for suspected involvement in a series of residential burglaries, Columbus police said.
Tyler Dequintez Marshall, who recently turned 17, was taken into custody at 2 p.m. and charged with three counts of burglary, participation in criminal gang activity and criminal attempted burglary. He is held without bond in the Muscogee County Jail for a 9 a.m. Thursday hearing in Recorder’s Court.
Marshall of Columbus joins Thomas Farley, 18, Bobby Thomas, 20; Itavius Jones, 19; and a 16-year-old boy facing charges in a series of burglaries. All have been identified as members of the gang and accused in a string of burglaries.
Marshall and the other suspects are charged in a burglary in the 3100 block of Hatcher Drive, two break-ins in the 6800 block of Fawndale Drive and the attempted burglaries in the 7100 block of Land Drive and 1400 block of Lokey Drive.
