Four Rome residents are facing charges of participation in criminal street gang activity and a number of other felonies including conspiracy to violate Georgia’s Controlled Substances Act and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

According to the arrest warrants:

19-year-old Charles Maddarius Lamar Adams and 18-year-old Jakobie Jiquan Adams conspired with 19-year-old Caden Alexander Morang to sell marijuana to another person at a convenience store on Burnett Ferry Road on Sept. 7, 2022. Two days later, the three are accused of being in the same room as 18-year-old Corey Lashun Chatman Jr., at a Conider Ring apartment along with narcotics, packaging materials, and a digital scale.

The four are suspected members of the Real Northside Babies street gang.

On Sept. 12, 2022, Floyd County Police were conducting a follow-up investigation into a shooting incident and executed a search warrant at the apartment.  Morang escaped with another individual through a window.

On Oct. 15, 2022, Charles Adams and Jakobie Adams participated in a gang-related beating during a meeting on Lavender Drive in which the victim was robbed at gunpoint. The victim sustained several injuries to his head, face, and body. The victim was not allowed to leave until the assault was over, at which time he was taken home by the suspects.

Charles Adams is also accused of assisting another man in an armed robbery that same day at a home on Pine Street. He is charged with being a party to the crime of armed robbery in that incident in which the victim had a gun held to his head and his cell phone was stolen.
