The Shirley Avenue Boys Street Gang have taken a massive hit with the indictment of 17 members following a two-year investigation into their violent ways, Richmond County authorities said Wednesday.
During a press conference Wednesday, Sheriff Richard Roundtree, District Attorney Ashley Wright and Assistant D.A. Natalie Paine announced the indictment of members of the L.O.E. (Loyalty of Everything), also known as the Shirley Avenue Boys Street Gang.
This indictment culminated a two-year investigation of this street gang that is an organization involved in murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault, drug distribution, firearms violations, witness tampering and bribery amongst other charges.
Fourteen have been arrested, two are being sought and one is in active-duty military. Surprisingly, one of those arrested was identified as Gregory Mims, a former Richmond County Jailer.
“We hope this sends a clear message that people who are involved in other street and activity in this county, that we are going to throw every resource we have available to not only arrest and prosecute, but to eradicate the gang’s activity in Richmond County,” Sheriff Roundtree said.
