Albany- Prosecutors want the case of five teens moved up to Superior Court. The teens were arrested during a raid of 15 homes of suspected C.M.E.

Rattlers gang members last Thursday. During the raid officers confiscated drugs, guns, and stolen electronics.

"I'm going to take a very tough approach on these gangs and we're going to do everything we can to ensure that these kids get the maximum penalties including taking juveniles up to superior court. We're going to put an end to the gangs here in Dougherty County," says Tommy Coleman.

District attorney Ken Hodges says the hearing to see if the teens cases will be moved to superior court will be held February 15th.
