Rappers Young Thug and Gunna have been caught in a huge bust. It involves charges of racketeering and gang activity.
Authorities said, on Monday, that 28 people connected with YSL are facing a 56-count indictment. Young Slime Life, YSL, is a criminal street gang that began in 2012, close to Cleveland Avenue, in Atlanta.
Jeffery “Young Thug” Williams was arrested after a home he was visiting was raided. Walls were torn down and some of the backyard was dug up.
Thug was later placed in the Fulton County Jail, in Georgia. Records show he was charged with conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). He was also charged for being a part of criminal street gang activity.
The conspiracy charge is from a supposed incident that happened on January 24, 2013. The gang charge is related to an incident that occurred on May 12, 2018.
Sergio “Gunna” Kitchens is said to have been charged with one count of conspiring to violate RICO.
In 2015, Donovan Thomas, 26, was murdered in a drive-by shooting. Two other people were injured, as well. Authorities say that Thug renting the vehicle used in the killing.
Christian “Big Bhris” Eppinger was also involved in the 56-count indictment. He was apprehended earlier this year in the shooting of a police officer in Atlanta.
Prosecutors say that Eppinger and Antonio Sumlin requested that Thug allow them to try to kill Rapper YFN Lucci. This was a second attempt. Lucci was said to have been stabbed while he was locked up at the Fulton County Jail in February.
