Former Fulton prosecutor who played key role in BMF investigation arrested on drug charges

  • Fulton County Sheriff's
The former prosecutor who headed the Fulton County district attorney's investigation into the Black Mafia Family was arrested today on multiple drug charges during a sting operation.

According to the Atlanta Police Department, Rand Csehy (pronounced Chay-hee) was charged with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and ecstasy. The 40-year-old was also charged with two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Police say arrangements were made to deliver the drugs to an undisclosed location. "When Mr. Csehy arrived at the undisclosed location with listed items he contacted a source and was then arrested," the police statement says. He's currently being held in the Fulton County jail.

Former CL senior writer and editor Mara Shalhoup described Csehy in her 2010 book about BMF's rise and fall as a ballsy prosecutor with loops in his ears and tattoos on his triceps - he looked "more like a narc" than an assistant district attorney, she wrote - who loved working in the narcotics division. According to Shalhoup, Csehy gravitated toward the cops who brought him their cases and often rode along on the execution of drug warrants and sting operations. He left the DA's office shortly after federal agents took control of the case and started a private practice, which included representing Gregg Junnier, one of the APD officers involved in the Kathryn Johnston murder. Last August Csehy told police he was attacked in downtown by a former client while getting in his car.

Prior to joining the Fulton DA's office Csehy served as Forsyth County's first drug prosecutor for three years.
