An alleged gang member is off the streets of Acadiana.

Cody Guidry turned himself in to Abbeville Police. 

He was wanted for Gang Activity in Vermilion Parish.

Part of the alleged Gremlins Gang, called out by Clay Higgins in that controversial segment that's been viewed more than 18 million times online. 

At approximately 7:19pm Wednesday evening, Cody Guidry came to Food ETC here in Abbeville and turned himself in to Abbeville Police. In speaking to civil rights activist John Barnett, he says Guidry is not guilty of some of the more serious charges he's being accused of.

 Barnett says he believes Guidry, as well as the other fugitives involved with the Gremlins Gang are running because they are scared."

Speaking to Guidry, Barnett says he believes Guidry is telling the truth, and that he is not guilty of some of the more serious charges he's being accused of, including murder and extortion.

"And then this morning I got a mysterious call, from an unknown number, from (Cody Guidry), saying that he was tired of running and he was ready to turn himself in. He says he was totally innocent, and that he had nothing to do with that particular murder, and he couldn't believe that he was being charged with it. So out of this fear, he ran. So I told him that it would be better if he turned himself in. Because they are not going to stop looking for you. It's not like they would give up one day," says Barnett.

Barnett also says there is a rally in about two weeks to discuss these ongoing events.
