Five men from in and around the Loganville area were arrested and charged following two drive-by shooting attempts in the Teresa Lane neighborhood in Loganville last month.
According to the incident report from Loganville Police Department, just after 10 p.m. on Oct. 29, multiple shots were heard by officers who were standing in the parking lot of Faith’s Crossing. As an attempted drive-by shooting had been reported on Alexis Court a couple of nights before, officers responded to the neighborhood and were able to block a vehicle attempting to exit the neighborhood. It was occupied by a female driver, a juvenile and three men. It also matched the vehicle identified by witnesses in the previous drive-by attempt. Although the occupants denied having weapons in the vehicle, and claimed that someone had been shooting at them, shell casing and weapons were located in the vehicle. The juvenile was taken to Rockdale Juvenile Detention Center and the other four were arrested and charged with aggravated assault. Charged were Alexia Lavarne Ceasar, 19, of Loganville, who was the driver, and Drentavious Devonte Tiller, 20, Eric Robert Terrell, 18, and Kristyan Oliver Barthelus, 20, all of Snellville. They were booked at Loganville Police Department and transported to Gwinnett County Jail. They have since bonded out.
In the previous drive-by shooting attempt, which happened on Oct. 27, the incident happened at about 8:45 p.m. on Alexis Court. The suspect were gone when police arrived, but bullet holes were found in the garage door of the home as well as in the kitchen, dining room and pantry of another home on Randy Road.
