Last man wanted in shooting surrenders

ALBANY -- The last man wanted for shooting at a police officer drove back from hiding in Panama City, Fla., Saturday night, stated an Albany Police Department report.

Rolando Dupree Frazier, 32, surrendered to the Gang Unit on Habersham Road at Randolph Street at about 11 p.m., the report added.

Officer Daniel Glover was the target of gunfire when he responded to a call on the 1200 block of East Residence Avenue on Aug. 23. He was uninjured.

Frazier joined six other Blood gang members in Dougherty County Jail charged with aggravated assault on an officer, street gang participation and other charges, said District Attorney Greg Edwards.

"It was represented to me that after we got the Crips (gang), the Bloods were not going to go down like them," Edwards said.

The shooting could be related to the police action called "Operation Shock." In a multi-agency roundup 54 Crips gang members were charged with racketeering on Aug. 19.

Although 44 were in jail at the time for underlying charges such as armed robbery and aggravated assault, the rest offered no resistance to police when arrested.

Police Chief John Protor said, "We appreciate the community assisting us with calling and providing the needed information to get these individuals off the streets of our city. The feedback we received through tips is a strong indication that citizens are willing and ready to become guardians of their own neighborhoods because they have gotten fed up and tired of criminal activity."

Bactavious Clyde was arrested after the initial round up, police reports stated. Nine Crips remain on the Albany police most wanted list: Morian Anderson; Sederick Blocker; John Zachery; Artorius Davis; Raphael Everette; Alvin Cross; Monquavious Hampton; Demetrius Martin and Jontravious Keith.
