One of the men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery — Gregory McMichael — was a neighborhood watchman for cops just months before the killing, Your Content has learned.

What’s more, texts obtained by TMZ indicate police told at least one neighbor if there was a trespass he should call McMichael and not them.

Developing now… Details to follow.

According to text messages between an officer of the Glynn County Police Department and Larry English, the owner of the home under construction where Ahmaud’s alleged killers claim he was trespassing, police told English to call Greg instead of cops whenever Larry needed assistance.
