NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - The second man wanted in connection with a violent attack in Georgia is now in police custody. Chazaray Jones, 20, surrendered to authorities in Floyd County Thursday afternoon after Indiana State Police issued an ultimatum.
On Thursday, Indiana State Police spokesman Sgt. Jerry Goodin went on the air with this warning: "Chazaray, if you're seeing this you need to make sure that you turn yourself in to the authorities as soon as possible. We know what's happened, we've got your information. And we're going to look for you. If you're in Indiana we're going to guarantee that we're going to find you."
A few hours later, Chazaray surrendered.
Jones and 30-year-old Sly Norman are accused of being involved in an attack on two drug dealers in Americus, Georgia Tuesday night. Both men are accused of using AK-47 assault rifles to beat and rob the men. One of the victims was allegedly abducted for a brief time and a ransom was demanded from his family members.
Indiana State Police took Norman into custody at a home on market Street in New Albany Wednesday afternoon.
Norman made his initial court appearance in New Albany Thursday morning. Bond was set but even if he posts it, he'll continue to be held until authorities in Georgia can have him extradited.
