Man Accused of Stealing ROTC Instructors Gun, Using it to Steal Student's Phone

The incident is alleged to have happened at South Gwinnett. Daquan Amir Miller, of Snellville, is charged with entering auto, possessing a firearm on school property, aggravated assault and violation of probation.

A Snellville man is accused of going onto school property and breaking into a vehicle, stealing a gun and pointing that weapon at a student, according to police.

Daquan Amir Miller was arrested in early February on charges of entering auto, possessing a firearm on school property, aggravated assault and violation of probation.

According to Sgt. Trey Downs of the Snellville Police Department, the incident occurred at South Gwinnett High School. Downs said that Miller broke into a vehicle that belonged to an ROTC instructor and stole a firearm from it.

Walking on the sidewalk in front of the school, Miller approached a student who was leaving the school. He asked the student if he could use his cell phone, and the student said OK. Miller grabbed the phone, pretended to dial a phone number into it, and ran away, Downs said.

The student chased after him and caught up, but then Miller pulled out the gun and pointed it at him. The student ran off in the opposite direction.

Police searched for the suspect for several days and found Miller in an abandoned house Feb. 2.

This initially appeared on Snellville Patch.

I'm with ya all the way on this one Cooper69. And it takes some real cowards to gang up to 8-10 people and beat down one defenseless person. Gangs and REmanuel's lack of balls to take em out is the reason Chicago is the murder capital of the US right now. But RE is just a thug himself, another member of the Chicago gangsta thug mentality.....as is the one who sits in the WH. No conscience, no morality, no character, no integrity, no class. Just a criminal. They could make a decision to do right or wrong and since they chose wrong.....give em lead.

What is needed in Chicago is for Sheriff Joe Apario to declare war on the gangs with a no tolerance policy.

With all the money Gwinnett county has, they should invest in modern mugshot cameras. Look at the one above. Looks over exposed to me. 35mm fan
