Southeast Georgia investigation leads to indictment of 16 suspected gang members |

ATLANTA – Law enforcement officials have announced the largest indictment against a motorcycle gang in Georgia’s history with the arrest of 16 suspected members of the Outcast Motorcycle Gang in southeastern Georgia.

The arrests and indictments were announced Monday by Attorney General Chris Carr in conjunction with Atlantic Judicial Circuit District Attorney Billy J. Nelson Jr., Richmond Hill Police Commissioner Mitch Shores and other state and federal investigators.

The 13-month inter-agency investigation resulted in the seizure of approximately $180,000 in cash and the seizure of 71 weapons.

“This historic indictment is a testament to the results we can achieve when all levels of law enforcement work together to accomplish one thing: keep the people of our state safe,” Carr said. “By deploying our resources, we can more effectively disrupt the growing gang networks that are terrorizing our communities and endangering the lives of our most vulnerable citizens.”

The gang members are accused of carrying out an armed robbery and shooting at the Flacos House Bar & Grill and the Red Roof Inn on US 17 in Richmond Hill in June last year. The six victims have been linked to a rival motorcycle club. The investigation found evidence of criminal activity by the Outcast gang not only in Bryan County, but also in seven other counties in Georgia, Colleton County in South Carolina and Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

The Outcast Motorcycle Gang has 67 chapters across the country, including four in Georgia. The accused included the gang’s president, Melaun Arturi Aiken, 46; Vice President Eddie Latson, 43; Secretary Lee Alan Mole, 58; Michael Randolph, 43, the gang’s executive director; and Donovan Scott, 35, the chapter corporal.

Working with Gov. Brian Kemp, Carr established Georgia’s first statewide gang enforcement unit last year. Since beginning its work in July 2022, the unit has indicted 83 suspected gang members across Georgia.
