Cumberland murder suspect re-arrested twice

Posted May 7, 2011

— An alleged gang member awaiting trial for a June 2009 slaying was re-arrested twice this week by Fayetteville and Cumberland County authorities.

Antonel Concepcion White, 21, who also goes by Antonelli, was arrested in September 2009 for the shooting that killed Treymane Wayne Council, 22, and seriously injured Maurice LaQuan McLean, 16, along Starlit Drive, just outside Fayetteville.

Fayetteville police said jail records show White was released on bond on Dec. 21, 2010 and placed under house arrest with electronic surveillance.

Officers investigating tips about drug activity raided an apartment at 1891 Tryon Drive in Fayetteville Thursday. Inside, police said, they found White, three other 175 Valentine Blood gang members and a 12-gauge shotgun under White's bed.

White was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling for a controlled substance, both misdemeanors. Police said he was briefly held at the Cumberland County jail before being released, but Cumberland deputies re-arrested him Friday when he appeared at court.

Debbie Tanna, a spokeswoman for the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, said White was charged with violating his pre-trial house arrest agreement and placed in the jail under a $750,000 cash bond.

Shakoor Quayon Williams also faces charges in Council's slaying.

    He wants to be in a gang soooo bad. Make him part of the "Chain Gang". Sadly he will now have better living conditions then the guys in "field trainning exercise" at Bragg will have. That is truly a pitiful thought isn't it? I betting the boys in Special Ops out there can "pop up" a more fitting prison more fitting for scum like this. They might do it as a free service to Fayetteville as "good trainning", and even man it with guards for y'all.
