Seven people arrested at home known for drugs, gambling

CONYERS — Seven people have been arrested on various drug and weapons charges at a home in Stanton Woods subdivision with a reputation for illegal gambling, drugs and other illicit activities. The eighth person arrested was the mother of two of the men who were charged on drug and weapons offenses. Allison Lugnia Fuller, 49, was charged with keeping a disorderly house.

The residence at 2876 Stanton Road, known as the “Fuller House,” has been the location of ongoing investigations and previous arrests, according to the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office.

RCSO Narcotics and Vice investigators have been monitoring narcotics and gambling activity at the home since March. Throughout this time, investigators have witnessed men “throwing dice and exchanging money on the front porch of the residence,” as well as what appeared to be “hand-to-hand drug transactions in the yard and the street,” the Sheriff’s Office reported. Neighbors have complained often about witnessing gambling, suspected drug sales and hearing loud music and vulgar music coming from the property, investigators said.

In May, investigators served a search warrant at the home and found approximately 3 ounces of marijuana and a stolen handgun. Three people were arrested at that time, including 21-year-old Alonzo Bernard Fuller, who resides there.

“During the months following that day, I received calls from concerned citizens who wanted to stay anonymous. The concerned citizens advised me that the same individuals were selling narcotics at the residence again,” the incident report states.

Again in December, investigators received information that people living in the home were selling drugs. Another search warrant was executed on Dec. 11. When investigators arrived, people began fleeing the residence, but all were apprehended in the back yard or in a neighbor’s yard, authorities said.

One of the men who ran, Nicolas Alexander Colbert, 19, of 2660 Laurel Woods Lane, allegedly had a handgun when he was apprehended.

According to that incident report, Colbert attempted to flee the area by climbing over a fence, but he tripped and landed on his stomach. The investigator said Colbert refused to comply with repeated commands to show his hands and appeared to be manipulating something under his body as he lay on the ground. Colbert eventually complied after the investigator deployed his Taser in his back.

“Once I removed Colbert, I observed a silver and black Smith and Wesson handgun in the exact area he was lying,” the report states. “Colbert immediately began denying ownership of the firearm.”

Inside the Fuller House, investigators found about ¼ pound of marijuana and a handgun with its serial number removed that was reportedly stolen from a nearby neighborhood, the Sheriff’s Office reported.
