On Tuesday, July 16, 2019, an Emanuel County grand jury indicted seven members of a Bloods-affiliated racketeering enterprise after receiving testimony from Special Agents of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Eastman Office and the Washington County Multi-Agency Gang Unit.
The 44-count indictment—which includes murder, aggravated assault, drugs and firearms charges, as well as violations of the Street Gang Act and Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO)—is the culmination of investigative efforts spanning five years and involving multiple agencies.
The defendants in the case thus far are Tony Lenard Williams, 43 of Swainsboro; Travis Lee Brown, 36 of Swainsboro; Neshawn Brown, 19 of Swainsboro; Talik Reaun Williams, 22 of Swainsboro; Richard Curry Anderson, 31 of Lyons; Victor Jammal Hall, 27 of Swainsboro; and Walter Lee Figueroa, 22 of Adrian.
Tony Williams, Talik Williams, Travis Brown, and Neshawn Brown reported to the Emanuel County Courthouse this afternoon for a first appearance. For a full report, see next week’s edition of The Blade.
The joint investigation remains ongoing. Additional indictments and arrests are anticipated. Anyone with information pertaining to this case are encouraged to contact the Eastman GBI Office at 478-374-6988.
