Bibb County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Deputies were patrolling the area of Walker Street and Edna Place when they witnessed a white Chevy Cruz fail to stop at the stop sign. Deputies conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle.
While deputies were approaching the vehicle, the driver, 19-year-old Nicktarios Linardo Kinder, of Macon informed them that he had a rifle in the front seat of the car. Deputies had both Kinder and his passenger, 18-year-old Ricky Johnson III, of Macon exit the vehicle.
