ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - The Gwinnett County Police Department has arrested several young men they believe were involved in the illegal street racing recently in the county.

On April 3, a GCPD’s vehicle was damaged by participants after the officer responded to an illegal takeover of the intersection of Old Norcross and Britt roads.

Gwinnett Police arrested Alan Thomas Rodriguez (20-year-old from Atlanta) and charged him with Driving Laying Drag, Reckless Driving, and False Statements. Donovan Sanitago Ramos-Hernandez (19-year-old from Norcross) was arrested with the assistance of Norcross PD and charged with Interference of Government Property, Promotion or Organization of Exhibition of Illegal Drag Racing, Loitering/Prowling, and Willful Obstruction of Law Enforcement Officers. Jorge Coronado-Angel (17-year-old from Roswell) was arrested with the assistance of Roswell PD and charged with Promotion or Organization of Exhibition of Illegal Drag Racing.

A street takeover of the intersection of Peachtree Parkway and East Jones Bridge on Easter Sunday led to two arrests shortly after the incident. Brian Antonio-Garfias (17-year-old from Norcross) was charged with Driving Without a Valid License and Altered Suspension, and William Anthony Valencia (19-year-old from Aragon) and charged with Reckless Driving, Speeding, and Racing.
