Two trying to repossess car in Athens threatened with gun (GA)


Recommended Posts

Two metro Atlanta men found themselves looking down the barrel of a gun early Tuesday when authorities said a man armed with a pistol halted their attempt to repossess a car in Athens.


The showdown occurred about 1:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the Howard Johnson motel on Atlanta Highway, where a 36-year-old Duluth man found a 2016 Volkswagen Jetta that was on his repo list, according to an Athens-Clarke police report.


The man called a co-worker to bring a tow truck to the location, and as they loaded the car, the men told police that Kevonte Bugg, 26, of Cellar Court, Athens, came out of a motel room and angrily confronted them.


Bugg began “cussing him out” and threatened to kill the Duluth man, according to the report. Both men reported that Bugg pointed a gun at them and when Bugg drove off in the Jetta, they followed and called 911.


Responding officers caught up to the Jetta on Lone Star Road in a neighborhood off Cleveland Road, where Bugg was pulled over and arrested.


When police searched the Jetta, officers reported recovering a Glock 45 9mm handgun, 63 rounds of ammunition, a baggie of a substance that tested positive for cocaine and methamphetamine, a tube with a substance that tested positive for heroin, digital scales and four cell phones.


Bugg was charged with possession of a firearm during a felony, two counts of possessing controlled drugs and two counts of aggravated assault.
