Report of gang activity and stolen property leads to multiple arrests


STAFF REPORT :::

An investigation conducted by the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office has resulted in numerous arrests on narcotics and stolen property charges.

According to a press release issued by Sheriff Darrell Dix, the investigation targeting the residence located at 520 Mangham Road was initiated in early November after information was received alleging individuals associated with the Ghost Face Gangsters occupied that residence and that it was being used to receive, store and distribute stolen property, including vehicles and firearms.

Personnel of the SCSO Uniform Patrol Division (UPD) on Nov. 26, responded to a call of a stolen dirt bike. Officials say an investigation involving UPD, the Criminal Investigation Division, Special Operations Division and the C.A.G.E. Unit determined that Michael Shane Pierce, of 520 Mangham Road, was allegedly in possession of the stolen motorcycle.

At approximately 5 p.m. that same day, the SCSO S.W.A.T. Team executed a search warrant on that residence.

Supported by the SCSO STAR Unit, simultaneous entries were conducted on multiple structures on the property.

Once the property was secure, STAR was used to located a motorcycle reported stolen near the Mangham Road residence. Investigators also recovered additional stolen property and methamphetamine.

“We are continuing the investigation into the gang ties that we believe those arrested have, and we anticipate additional charges relating to the Georgia Criminal Street Gang Act,” Dix said. “Agents worked throughout the night processing the crime scene and as they did, individuals continued to show up at the residence where they were greeted by deputies and investigators. All were identified, some were arrested, and those not wanted or tied to the crimes were released without issue.”

Arrested were:

Michael Shane Pierce, of 520 Mangham Road, who was charged with two counts of theft by receiving stolen motor vehicle, theft by taking motor vehicle, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug related objects;

Michael Joshua Tumlin, of 520 Mangham Road, who was charged with two counts of theft by receiving stolen motor vehicle, theft by taking motor vehicle, possession of drug related objects, tampering with evidence, obstruction of a law enforcement officer and simple battery;
