Mexico apprehends final fugitive from one of Georgia’s largest drug trafficking cases involving 76 individuals

The Federal Bureau of Investigation in Atlanta has announced the arrest of the last remaining suspect in a drug conspiracy case.

In what officials are calling one of the largest-ever indictments in the state, the FBI has charged 76 individuals in Georgia.

Operation Ghost Busted is a collaborative effort by multiple agencies to dismantle a drug trafficking conspiracy in the Glynn County area.

According to officials, the drug conspiracy case is still the biggest indictment in the history of the Southern District of Georgia.

The indictment in the case of USA v. Alvarez reveals details of a drug trafficking operation associated with the Ghost Face Gangsters, a criminal street gang with white supremacist beliefs. The indictment also includes allegations of several deaths resulting from illegal drug overdoses.

Law enforcement officials confiscated a total of 43 firearms, along with a vehicle and more than $53,000 in cash, as part of the extensive 118-count, 133-page indictment.

On Saturday, law enforcement agencies in Mexico, in collaboration with FBI Atlanta agents, successfully apprehended David D. Young in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico.

According to officials, Young was the final fugitive out of the 76 individuals who were indicted in Operation Ghost Busted back in January 2023.

On December 8, 2022, Young faced serious legal trouble when a federal arrest warrant was issued against him. He was charged with conspiracy related to the possession and distribution of a controlled substance.

Young found himself transported back to the United States.
