Savannah rapper indicted on street gang, drug charges
SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - A Savannah rapper was indicted on drug charges and violations of the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act.
Tyquian Terrel Bowman, known as Quando Rondo, was indicted in a Chatham County court on Wednesday, June 14.
Bowman is one of 19 people named in a 49-count indictment.
Bowman first rose to fame in 2018 after the release of his first album “Life B4 Fame,” and has since grown on social media and Spotify.
Bowman is charged with violating the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, two counts of conspiracy to violate the Georgia Controlled Substance Act and illegal use of a communication facility. All four charges are felonies.
According to the indictment, Bowman is in a “management” position of the Rollin’ 60′s gang. He is accused of directing gang members to provide him with firearms and telling them to stop carrying firearms when in a vehicle with him.
The indictment lists a house on E. 39th Street as the Rollin’ 60′s drug house.
Also in the indictment, Bowman is accused of setting up a marijuana sale in Macon before traveling there to make the purchase. Bowman is also accused of purchasing hydrocodone pills on a separate occasion in Savannah.
The indictment also shows one of the charges comes from a drug deal facilitated by Bowman just six days after his newest album “Recovery” dropped.
WTOC has reached out to Bowman’s record label, Atlantic Records, about the arrest but has not received a response.
Bowman is scheduled to have a bond hearing on Friday, June 23, according to the Chatham County court website.
