In addition to the seven federal defendants apprehended today, Tommie Lee Williams, a/k/a “ATL”, 39, and Dapatrick Marque Richardson, 28, both of Charlotte and currently in custody on state offenses, have also been charged federally in connection with this investigation. Three more defendants, Daysha Cole, 20, Roberto Gallegos, 23, and Jamire White, 21, all of Charlotte, were arrested in November 2011, on a federal complaint on bank robbery charges stemming from this investigation. They are currently in local federal custody. Of those arrested today, Curtis Davis, made his initial federal court appearance this morning. The other six individuals in custody on federal charges will have their initial court appearances later today or tomorrow. Two additional defendants arrested today face state criminal charges.

Today’s arrests and indictments are the result of a four-month, cross-jurisdictional and multi-agency investigation conducted by local, state, and federal law enforcement officers, dedicated to making our streets and communities safer. The agencies involved in the initiative include the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina, ATF, CMPD’ s North Tryon Division & Vice Unit, the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office, the North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement Division, and North Carolina State Probation. The goal of the investigation is to target and reduce violent crime in Mecklenburg County, with special emphasis placed on the Sugar Creek/Interstate 85 corridor.

In making today’s announcement U.S. Attorney Tompkins stated, “Today’s arrests are the result of a coordinated effort among federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to focus our resources on a hot spot for violent crime. Throughout this investigation all agencies worked side by side to identify and prosecute individuals who pose a continuous threat to our community. I want to thank all the agencies involved in this successful endeavor, and to assure the public that we will all continue to work together and remain vigilant in our commitment to making our streets and communities safer. ” “Today’s joint enforcement operation should send a loud and clear message,” said ATF’s Acting Special Agent in Charge Robbins. “ATF will continue to combine our efforts and resources with our law enforcement partners to hold those accountable who continue to endanger our communities by engaging in violent crime; especially those crimes involving the use of firearms.” “A successful operation of this magnitude could only have been accomplished through multi-agency collaboration and communication. By working with our partners, who are just as committed as we are to reducing crime and bringing violent offenders to justice, we helped to improve the quality of life for our citizens today along the Sugar Creek corridor,” said Chief Monroe of CMPD. “Alcohol Law Enforcement is always willing to assist local, state and federal agencies in combating violent crime for the betterment of the community,” stated ALE’s Director John Ledford. “We are excited about working with federal and local law enforcement agencies in promoting public safety,” stated Tracy Lee, Judicial District Manager with North Carolina’s Division of Community Corrections. “We are encouraged by this initiative and look forward to continued collaboration among these agencies."

The charges contained in these indictments are allegations. The defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law. The investigation is being handled by the ATF, CMPD, ALE, and NC State Probation.
