122 weapons recovered after Georgia gun heist

Six young men are in custody and over 100 stolen guns off of the streets following a botched robbery at a pawn shop in Cumming, Georgia, over the weekend.

The suspects, identified as Jajuanis Armstrong, 19; Jason Wheeler, 20; Jordan Brown, 19; Senuel Hawk, 23; Rashad Jackson, 17, who is being charged as an adult; and a juvenile whose name was not released, were charged with robbery by force, burglary, possession of firearms during the commission of a crime, and other charges, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

The suspects are accused of stealing more than 30 firearms from a pawn shop early Saturday morning during a smash and grab. However, a pawn shop employee fired a single round at the suspects, who immediately fled from the scene in a pickup truck.

No one was injured during the robbery and subsequent shooting.

Soon thereafter, officers encountered a truck matching the description and a chase ensued after a traffic stop was initiated. During the chase, the truck became disabled and all seven suspects fled in varying directions, according to the Forsyth County News.

Four suspects were located and arrested almost immediately, while two other suspects were caught later that afternoon. The seventh suspect remains at large and authorities say the suspects in custody are not helping to locate or identify him. Altavious Jackson was named over the weekend as playing a part in the heist but has seen been cleared of any involvement.
