MACON CO. – A 32-year-old Georgia man was arrested by the GBI on child abuse charges for giving alcohol to two underage girls.


The GBI has arrested and charged 32-year-old Edvardo P. Johnson of Oglethorpe, GA. He is charged with two counts of cruelty to children, two counts of reckless conduct, and two counts of selling alcohol to anyone under the age of 21. On Tuesday, May 6, the Montezuma Police Department and Macon County Sheriff's Office requested the GBI's assistance in investigating a child abuse case.

The investigation shows that Johnson forced two underage girls to drink alcohol until they became sick. The minors told their parents what happened, which led to a forensic interview.

Johnson was booked into the Sumter County Jail, which houses Macon County inmates.

This case is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the GBI Regional Investigative Office in Americus at 229-931-2439. Anonymous tips can also be submitted by phone at 1-800-597-TIPS (8477), online at or by downloading the “See Something, Send Something” mobile app.
