A man who shot several holes into a Fieldstone residence in September was arrested last Tuesday.

Samuel Amba Nsunwara, 25 of Conyers, known by his street name "Swag," and was named as a suspect for the Sept. 16 shooting. He was picked out of a lineup during Sheriff's deputies investigation.

According to reports of the Sept. 16 incident, the victim said he was in his garage when Swag came in the back door and started an argument with him. The altercation then spilled outside of the garage, where the two men began fighting.

According to reports the victim said he "got the best of Swag and he was bleeding from the face."

Swag then reportedly returned to the area later with a rifle and shot multiple times from the neighbor's back yard into the garage area where the victim had been.

According to reports, several rifle rounds were found in the driveway in front of the house and multiple empty shell casings were found in the backyard of the neighbor's house near the fence area.


Man arrested with cocaine

While Rockdale County Sheriff's deputies were conducting a warrant roundup, they discovered crack cocaine and marijuana inside a book bag on Tuesday.

The deputies arrived at the Remington Drive address in Conyers at around 11:30 a.m. While talking with the home owner they smelled a strong odor of marijuana in the patio room, according to reports.

The deputies discovered a book bag on top of a freezer next to the back door that had marijuana in it. According to reports, inside the bag was also a box of baggies, metal grinder, electric scales, and a manila folder with the name Dontavius D. Jackson on it.

The home owner said the book bag belonged to her nephew. When told what was inside it she said she didn't know anything about the marijuana and gave consent for the deputies to search the house further.

"Look real good. I don't want any of that stuff in my house," the woman said to the deputies, according to reports.

When asked who the owner of the bag was, the woman said Dontavius Demal Jackson.

Jackson, 26, was arrested from his place of work, and according to reports, said the book bag was his but he did not know how the drugs got into his bag.

Deputies then met Jackson at his place of work and asked him if he could pass a drug test today. Jackson reportedly said "I would not pass the drug test."

Jackson was taken into the custody and the book bag was submitted into evidence, where it was discovered to contain crack cocaine in an inside pocket.

Jackson was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug related objects.
