7 Men Connected To 492 Car Break-Ins Across Metro Atlanta Indicted on RICO Charges

(ConservativeSense.com) – Seven suspects connected to hundreds of vehicle break-ins throughout and around Atlanta, Georgia, have been indicted on charges of racketeering.

On Friday, June 8, seven men were indicted for allegedly running a scheme across the Atlanta Metropolitan Area to break into cars in order to steal property to pawn for cash, often using stolen cars to move from crime to crime. The indictments followed a two-year investigation by the Gwinnett County Police Department into the crime ring. Five of the suspects have been taken into custody and two others are on the run and remain at large.

Myles David Cameron, Randy D. Martinez, Giovanni Louis Bell, Jaravris Cardell Gamble, Kylija Devion Yates, Kejuan Miliam, and Emmanuel Carvarria-Ornelas now face various charges, including for violating the RICO Act. All seven are accused of 492 car break-ins, from the end of November 2022 to the end of March 2024.

Investigators said the suspects worked out of an East Point safe house and stole cash, guns, and other items. They usually moved from crime to crime using stolen vehicles in order to disguise their identities, many of which were later discarded and then located by detectives. According to the Gwinnett District Attorney’s Office, the criminal gang also opened fire on at least one of the car owners when the owner tried to stop them.

Employing DNA and fingerprint analysis, looking at cell phones and surveillance video, and pursuing various leads with the help of multiple law enforcement organizations, the suspects were eventually all tracked down. Gwinnett police were assisted by the Norcross Police Department, the Cobb County Police Department, the Lilburn Police Department, the Duluth Police Department, the Gwinnett County District Attorney, the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office, and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

If found guilty of the RICO charges, each of the seven young men faces up to 20 years in prison. Gamble, Camerson, Chavarria-Ornelas, and Yates are all in custody and held in Gwinnett County jail. Martinez was caught in Florida. Bell and Milliam remain at large, fleeing the indictment.
