Nine Girls Arrested for Gang Activity in Peachtree City

Print More

Nine girls, all 13 to 15 years old, were arrested for gang activity Wednesday morning at their Fayette County schools, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The girls were turned in by other students who reported to school officials that the girls were making threats and wearing pink and black clothes.

Peachtree City police were already tracking the girls for allegations of bullying, beating in new gang members, carrying weapons and apparently sharing information on Facebook.

Investigators are increasingly monitoring social media websites to track gang activity, as we reported last month. Surveys across the country also show a nationwide trend of girls getting arrested more often than boys.

  1. Would be interested to hear more details-
    What adult “established” gang were the girls affiliated with?
    What weapons were they carrying?

    Outside of threats, what other activities were they engaged- in other words, what was the real level of gang threat represented here?

    This is a story that bears sustained follow-up.
