BY THE COLUMBUS PACKET
Two young men who appeared in The Packet just last week are back in the news again after one got arrested, again, and the other had his home burglarized.
Keyante Summerville, who was arrested by Columbus Police for possession of cocaine and marijuana, was again arrested late last Wednesday after he allegedly had sexual relations with a minor. Summerville, who is 24 years of age, was arrested and charged with sexual battery.
Packet readers may remember in the article on Summerville’s arrest, titled “Major Fail on Fail Street,” an erroneously spelled street sign was featured. The sign for Alfalfa (Avenue) had been posted as Alfailfa- an unfortunate, yet ironic misspelling. The City of Columbus has since corrected the error.
Also appearing in the news this week was the story of some concerned neighbors who called E-911 to report that a suspicious character was snooping around at a home at 136 King St. in East Columbus. Police arrived to discover Christopher Peacock mulling about inside the home. Peacock initially told officers he had walked in through the front door, which officers pointed out was completely blocked by a full size couch . Peacock then admitted he had used a credit (or debit) card to open the back door to gain entry. He was charged with burglary and transported to the Lowndes County Adult Detention Center.
The resident of the home was identified by Columbus Police as Jeremy Minga, who that very same morning drove his truck in a meth-fueled rampage across several of his neighbors’ lawns before crashing into four of their cars. Apparently Minga’s neighbors chose to turn the other cheek when they saw someone suspicious lurking at his home. Minga was released from the LCADC sometime Wednesday afternoon.0
