Young Thug and Gunna have reportedly been indicted on RICO charges.

On Monday night (May 9), journalist Michael Seiden of local Atlanta news station WSBTV reported that Thugger, Gunna and 26 other members of YSL have been indicted on RICO charges, with Thug being taken into custody at his home this morning. According to Seiden, “The indictment includes charges of conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, murder, armed robbery , participation in criminal street gang activity.”

Prosecutors are accusing YSL of being a “criminal street gang that started in late 2012 in the Cleveland Avenue area of ATL. YSL claims affiliation with the national Bloods gang,” reports Seiden.

Video has also surfaced that shows someone who appears to be Young Thug being hauled away in handcuffs on a neighborhood street in Buckhead that’s buzzing with police activity. The person taking the video notes that 10 people were handcuffed and detained during the raid on Young’s home.

XXL has reached out to Young Thug and Gunna’s reps for comment.
