The sheriff’s office has not released the man’s name or the charges he faces.
He was arrested at a location on North Hill Street in Griffin. When he was taken into custody, deputies said they found a handgun on him.
The man’s Facebook account, which is named BlixkyGang LilAnt (RatchettBoy), is a reference to a criminal street gang, according to the sheriff’s office. Dix called the man a “well-known documented gang banger.”
Maj. Dwayne Jones told AJC.com that the sheriff plans to release more details either later Wednesday or Thursday morning.
