A father and son have been charged with criminal street gang activity, possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, terroristic threats and multiple counts of aggravated assault.

Cedric Jerod Jackson, 18, and Cedric Jerome Jackson, 41, were arrested Friday night at their home on Oglesby Place in Macon, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office news release.

During the course of an investigation by members of the sheriff’s office gang unit, its violent crimes unit and state probation officers, the younger Jackson allegedly was discovered to be a leader of the criminal street gang “10/12.” Members of that gang have been tied to numerous shooting investigations in and around the Freedom Park and Payne City areas, the release stated.

The father and son were being held in the Bibb County jail without bond.

The sheriff’ office is asking people who witness or hear about gang activity to call the gang unit’s hotline at 478-751-7600.
