A University of West Georgia student was among four people arrested on robbery and gang-related charges after an incident near the Carrollton campus, police said.
Another UWG student wanted in connection with the Nov. 4 incident is at large, according to authorities.
The victims, who police said were trying to sell drugs, met the suspects at the Campus Walk apartments and were robbed as they entered an apartment, which was vacant but had gang graffiti inside, police said.
Despite the planned drug activity, the victims reported the robbery and helped Carrollton police find the suspects, Capt. Shannon Cantrell of Carrollton police said.
Arrested were UWG student Jaylen Love, 19; Quincy Walker, 20; Kelvin Williams, 20; and Jeremy Minor-James, 18, police said. They have been charged with robbery, false imprisonment and two counts of the Georgia Gang Act.
UWG student Cameron Dalton-Harvey, 18, is at large, police said. He will face the same charges when he’s arrested.
UWG police aided in the arrests.
