By Carol A. Gasser Moore

GEORGIA – Operation Ghost Busted (OGB) which was reported by the Lanier County news in January 2023, is identified as “one of the largest and most widespread joint law enforcement operations in recent Georgia history”, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The television program, America’s Most Wanted will feature an episode on Monday, February 19th at 8 p.m. on Fox Television.

According to Fox Television, the episode will focus on David D. Young, also known as “Khaos.” Young’s criminal involvement outlined in the Operation Ghost Busted (OGB) will be the focus of the broadcast.

Still at large, David Young remains at large after the January 11, 2023 OGB took place.  Young, (AKA ‘Khaos’) will be the feature.  Young is a South Georgia fugitive.  OGB involved a number of arrests across Southeast Georgia.  Glynn County Sheriff’s Office, federal investigators as well as other Georgia and federal agencies were involved in the OGB investigation and arrests. Their goal was to end a “massive, gang-related drug trafficking conspiracy that led to multiple convictions”.

One of the people convicted from the OGB investigation was James D. NeSmith.  NeSmith was convicted and is now serving a life in prison sentence for murder and multiple drug-related crimes.  The Glynn County Sheriff’s Office says that NeSmith’s collaborators, known as the “Ghost Face Gangsters,” worked with other criminal and white supremacist street gangs around Georgia.

Young is accused of being one of NeSmith’s collaborators, and is the focus of the upcoming episode.  David D. Young is named in a federal arrest warrant which was issued in December 2022.  Young has been charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and to distribute a controlled substance.

Young is still at large and on the FBI’s “Wanted” list.
