BIBB COUNTY, Ga. - Georgia deputies have arrested multiple suspects after an investigation into stolen guns at a Bibb County apartment complex.
Officials say they began the investigation after a tip about the location of 18-year-old Macon resident Rashid Ivey, who had multiple warrants out for his arrest for aggravated assault.

Dennard is also charged with fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer for a felony offense and second-degree cruelty to children. Pollard is additionally charged with eight counts of possession of a firearm by a person under 18 years old.
The three juveniles are currently at the Macon Regional Youth Development Center charged with four counts of felony theft by receiving stolen property and eight counts of possession of a firearm by a person under 18 years old.
