Dozens Arrested In State & Federal Drugs, Firearms Case

By Jim McCoy Wed 9th July Newsdrugsgangsguns
26 people have been arrested and seven search warrants have been served by law enforcement in a multi-agency drug investigation called “Rap It Up.” The Jackson County Sheriff’s Department says many of the suspects have gang ties and have been involved in everything from drug trafficking to prostitution to illegal gun activity. The investigation started a year ago, after Jon Meyer shot and killed a 5-year old Grants Pass girl, Alysa Bobbitt, and wounded her mother, Karen Hancock with an illegally purchased gun. The investigation revealed a string of illegal firearm purchases by means of what is called a “Straw.” Straw purchasing is the process of buying a gun from a federally licensed firearm dealer by a person (“straw”) for the purpose of concealing who is receiving the firearm. A report from today’s Medford Mail Tribune (http://www.mailtribune.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20140709/NEWS07/407090343) provides a list of those arrested and those being sought. They are: • Dominique Agnimel • Deshawn Winzer • Kristina Freniere • Timothy Johnson • Scott Swift • Sara Garman • Jana Rempillo • Jennifer Aguilar • Mahwren Wear • Max Goldman • Sheldon Wesley • Steven Brooks • Terrance Coleman • Daniel Ziegler • Nancy Quigley • Andre Martin • Michael Guidotti • Jeffrey Cole • Earl Allen • Jessalynn Bird • Anthony Colgate • Jon Meyer • Kalina Baines • Vincent Johnson • Katherine Hogue • Henry Carr The five remaining wanted suspects include: • D'Andre Parker • Quincy Johnson • Emannuel Snowden • Dominique Straughter • Demont Jackson The investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected.
