ALBANY, Ga. — An Albany man is facing jail time after an incident Tuesday morning in which officers managed to seize guns and nearly $2,000 in counterfeit bills.

Robert E. Hall, Jr., 44, told police he had been in Flash Foods near the intersection of Westover Boulevard and Meredyth Drive making a report to an APD officer regarding an incident between Aunterrio Robinson, 37, and Hall son, Robert K. Hall, the previous night. Right after the officer left, Robinson pulled up in his car and pointed a gun at Robert Hall Jr., Hall said.

Hall then pursued Robinson while on the phone with 911 operators and marked APD units monitored the pursuit from a safe distance, APD spokeswoman Phyllis Banks said.

Officers stopped Robinson at First Avenue and Swift Street, where he was arrested. A second male, Jamal Lane, 21, is believed to have jumped from the vehicle and fled on foot but was later captured by police on the 1300 block of East Society Avenue. Seized were two handguns and 94 $20 bills that investigators believe to be counterfeit.

Lane also has an active warrant for a probation violation from Valdosta. He has been charged with 94 counts of forgery, two felony counts of theft by receiving stolen property and possession of a firearm.

Robinson was charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and transported to the Dougherty County Jail, Banks said.

Hall was charged with disorderly conduct, as was Robert E. Hall for getting into a fight with the suspect as he was arrested.

Does anyone else see something that isn't quite right with this whole thing? I sure would like to know the rest of the story. Especially if these two will face a mandatory ten on Federal firearms charges.

Yeah, I am sure the "victim" didn't know a thing about the goods in the other car.

Those who demand more gun control had better demand full prosecution time for a felon with a gun. Otherwise, just shut up!
