Gang’s planned ‘˜Hood Day’ at Barnesville B&B thwarted

Social media posts regarding a ‘˜Hood Day’ event hosted by the Bloods gang at a Collier Road bed and breakfast triggered a massive law enforcement response here Saturday that involved some 60 heavily armed officers. The gathering was planned for a home known as the Black Chateau located at 312 Collier Road. Sheriff Brad White reported Monday the owner of the home actually cancelled the gang’s rental of the property. To be sure there were no problems, a series or road checks coordinated through the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety were set up on along avenues of access to and egress from the B&B. No gang members showed up but the checkpoints resulted in 13 arrests. ‘Most of them were local,’ the sheriff added. The Black Chateau is owned by Special Breed Investment Group, LLC of a Roswell Road address in Atlanta. Its registered agent if Anthony Williams, who also has an Atlanta address. Online pitches for the bed and breakfast note it rents for at least $773 per night. The home has an indoor/outdoor pool. There is an additional charge of $200 per night if renters would like the pool heated. The B&B boasts five bedrooms, nine beds, two and a half bathrooms and seven 65-inch TVs. The house is located in a single-family residential area in which bed and breakfasts are not allowed, according to Barnesville city manager Tim Turner. Multi-family zoning is required for such operations. The city issued a cease and desist order which was posted on the front door of the residence on March 31 but rentals have continued. Williams does not have a business license which the city also requires. ‘This matter is currently in litigation,’ Turner added. Special Breed bought the home from Roger W. Warren, Jr. on April 22, 2020 for $112,500. Turner said rentals began last November but the city got no complaints until March. ’We dodged a bullet on this. Chief Cooper asked Mr. Williams to cancel the rental and he did. Our law enforcement did a great job in being prepared,’ Turner concluded.
