    He is not the only one of the group to be locked up for that crime. Jaelen Bell has been arrested three different times for stealing someone’s car. In October 2016, he carjacked a guy off Park Ave. Two months later, Bell was out of 201 and his prints were found inside a car that was stolen off Park Avenue. Then a few months ago in August, a man’s Impala was stolen from a gas station. Bell was seen getting into the car later at Bent Tree Apartments.
    Tracy Woodall, 18, was arrested in June after police say he punched his girlfriend, then fought his sister who tried to intervene. Then pulled a gun and threatened to kill them both.
    A few weeks ago police say Woodall cut off his GPS monitor and threw it in a ditch.
