Each day, more and more information on Tekashi 6ix9ine and co.'s federal case emerges. 6ix9ine is currently locked up as well as six of his co-defendants. Today, New York officials identified an eight suspect indicted on charges related to the case.
Complex reports that an eighth suspect has been identified in Tekashi 6ix9ine's federal racketeering case. Aaron Young a.k.a. Bat was identified as the eighth suspect in the case. Young is accused of being involved in Nine Tr3y Gangsta Bloods' operation.
"The defendant, and others known and unknown, intentionally and knowingly did combine, conspire, confederate, and agree together and with each other to violate narcotics laws of the United States. It was part and an object of the conspiracy that [Young] ... would and did distribute and possess with the intent to distribute controlled substances." The indictment reads.
There hasn't been much information on why the indictment wasn't revealed publicly. It could be due to the fact that he was on the run until this week. Young was arrested in Scranton, NY on Wednesday on racketeering, weapons and drugs charges, WNEP reports. Young was taken to the U.S. Courthouse in Manhattan following his arrest for his arraignment.
Faheem "Crippy" Walter, Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, Jensel "Ish" Butler, Fuguan "FuBanga" Lovick, Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones, and Roland "Ro Murda" Martin are also 6ix9ine and Young's co-defendants in the case.
