GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — A 19-year-old in Gwinnett County is the person police believe has been organizing illegal street racing events in the county.

Investigators have linked McCullock to two illegal events last year.

The first was on March 11 where he was identified being involved in a street racing event at the intersection of Old Norcross Road and Breckinridge Blvd. in unincorporated Duluth.

More recently, they say he organized another event just a few days before Christmas on Dec. 23.


In that event, hundreds of cars gathered in the parking lot of a shopping center on Buford Drive in Buford.

“The Gwinnett County Police Department recognizes the hazard these illegal street racing activities pose to the public. These dangerous and reckless activities will not be tolerated. We are committed to keeping the streets of Gwinnett County safe for all residents and visitors,” police wrote in a release.
