“Further arrests are forthcoming as this investigation continues. We would not be at this point in the investigation without the help of the public and our local and federal law enforcement partners. Sheriff (Richard) Roundtree personally thanks the dozens of individuals who called with information surrounding this case,” the statement said.

Also taken into custody were 25-year-old Devonte Juanye McNeil and 20-year-old Henri Ramone Beach, both on a charge of financial transaction card theft.  

Maj. Steve Morris of the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday McNeil was booked into the jail but posted bond and was released overnight.  

Beach is being held in the Charles B. Webster Detention Center in Richmond County.  

This isn’t the first time Redfield has been implicated involved in a slaying

Charges including murder filed against Redfield and another man were dismissed Nov. 16. According to the court order presented to Judge John Flythe, who was assigned to the case, the district attorney was unable to disprove to the degree necessary that Redfield and a second man shot in self defense.

Redfield and Charvez Lawson were charged with murder in in the Dec. 7, 2019, fatal shooting outside the Private I club on Thomas Lane. Ja Brie Dominguez, 23, and Charles Lawson III, 28, both died of gunshot wounds.

Redfield was previously sentenced to eight years probation in August 2019 for possession of illegal drugs, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, family violence battery, trespass and possession of a firearm without a license. In January 2019, he was convicted of the misdemeanor offense of possession of a firearm by an underage person and sentenced to one year probation.

One of the other suspects arrested Wednesday also has a string of arrests.

A prosecutor’s request to revoke Beach’s $25,000 bond granted in a January 2020 mugging is set to be heard Feb. 3. Meanwhile, Beach is back in jail, facing charges of credit card fraud in connection with Monday’s arrest, as well as several charges stemming from an arrest in December.

Beach has pleaded not guilty Richmond County to charges of robbery by force, two counts of aggravated assault, possession of stolen property and misdemeanor obstruction of an officer. Those charges were filed for crimes that allegedly occurred on Jan. 18, 2020, when a man was mugged, choked and threatened with a gun. Beach was granted a $25,000 bond in September on those charges.

Three months later, Beach was arrested with two other men at the Primetime Bar and Grill on the Gordon Highway. He was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, theft, illegal gang activity and weapon charges.

Beach is allegedly a member of the gang known as Loyalty Over Everything. Richmond County Sheriff’s investigators have been targeting people believed to be LOE members for crimes of violence as well as drug dealing and theft related crimes. LOE was formerly known as the Shirley Avenue Boys for the area where the gang formed in the 1980s. According to indictments against alleged LOE members, the name changed in 2010 to expand membership to those living outside of Shirley Avenue.

  1. Such a ‘blessing’! ‘Our community’ they are terrorizing is finally standing-up against them and assisting our Sheriff Roundtree and his dwindling force of our ‘Peace Officers’, whose numbers have now dwindled to over 100. I will continue my prayers for him, his officers and our entire city and surrounding ares. jhw
