Multiple Georgia men charged with narcotics and weapons trafficking

According to officials with the US Attorney’s Office, several people face charges in a recently unsealed 14-count federal indictment accusing them of participating in a narcotics trafficking conspiracy in the Savannah area. This indictment follows another connected case in which two people were indicted in connection with a brutal carjacking.

According to police, one of the defendants, “Quando Rondo,” is a well-known Savannah-based rapper.

In the words of Jill E. Steinberg, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia, the case, USA v. Grant et al., alleges that the defendants conspired to possess and distribute illicit substances such as methamphetamine, cocaine, fentanyl, and marijuana dating back to at least January 2021.

If convicted on the conspiracy allegation, the defendants may face a maximum statutory penalty of up to 20 years in prison, as well as hefty fines and penalties under Georgia law. Because there is no parole in the federal system, officials indicated that upon completion of any jail term, a period of supervised release would follow.

According to the indictment, all defendants are charged with Conspiracy to Possess Intent to Distribute and to Distribute Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Fentanyl, and Marijuana, with some facing additional crimes.

Officials issued the following indictment charges:

  • Tremaine Grant, 24, of Savannah, faces additional drug distribution, conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery, and unlawful firearm possession charges.
  • Laron Thompson, “Hollywood,” 38, of Savannah, faces new drug distribution and illegal firearm possession charges.
  • Tyquian Bowman, “Quando Rondo,” 24, of Savannah
  • Donald Davis, “Lil D,” 29, of Savannah
  • Ty’Sean Davis, “Stro,” 21, of Savannah
  • Jarrell Palmer, “Rel,” 36, of Pooler, faces an additional allegation of conspiracy to interfere with commerce by robbery.
