Rapper YoungBoy NBA YoungBoy Raided by FBI for Prescription Fraud Ring – Shocking Details Inside!

HUNTSVILLE, Weber County, Utah – Law enforcement officials conducted a search at the home of rapper YoungBoy, also known as NBA YoungBoy, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and YB, on Tuesday as part of an investigation into alleged criminal activities. The Cache County Sheriff’s Office revealed that YoungBoy, born Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, is a suspect in a major prescription fraud ring according to a police affidavit.

Authorities state that the FBI has identified YoungBoy as the leader of the NBA street gang in Louisiana. The FBI has classified his associates as a gang due to their structure, affiliation, and violent behavior. YoungBoy’s music is said to reflect this behavior with lyrics centered around violence, drug use, and a disdain for law enforcement.

Investigators in Cache County were alerted to fraudulent prescriptions last September when a Hyrum pharmacy received a suspicious order. The prescription was made using the credentials of a Provo doctor, but the patient’s name did not match anyone in the doctor’s records.

Over the course of several months, police documented 18 successful prescription fills and at least two attempted frauds across Cache County and Utah. The prescriptions were made under false names impersonating elderly patients, commonly ordering the antibiotic doxycycline and promethazine with codeine – a frequently abused controlled substance often used to make “purple drank” or “lean.”

In January, the Cache-Rich Drug Task Force arrested two individuals attempting to pick up codeine prescriptions in Smithfield, driving a vehicle registered to YoungBoy. During a phone conversation, investigators overheard YoungBoy’s friend suggesting he ask about the prescriptions, leading authorities to believe there was an attempt to deceive them.

During the search at YoungBoy’s mansion in Weber County, police found prescribed medication in false names, unlabeled codeine, and a gun. YoungBoy, who has been on house arrest since October 2021 on a federal firearms charge, was taken into custody for investigation related to drug procurement, identity fraud, forgery, possession of controlled substances, and possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person.

The Cache County Sheriff’s Office stated that multiple agencies were involved in executing the warrant at YoungBoy’s residence, including Homeland Security, the FBI, the Secret Service, and Layton police SWAT. YoungBoy’s trial for the federal firearms charge is set to begin on July 15.
