On December 12, 2017 suspect Kevin Scott Sosebee (a documented member of the Ghost Face Gangsters) fired multiple rounds at a Cobb County Police Officer during a traffic stop at Community Drive and Mableton Parkway in Mableton, Georgia. Sosbee was able to flee the area to elude capture.
During the next two days extensive searches were conducted for Sosebee by members of the United States Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force and the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit. Law enforcement had received information that Sosebee was hiding in a remote trailer off of Pope Road in Carroll County, Georgia.
On December 15, 2017 Sosebee was located in the Villa Rica, Georgia area by the United States Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force along with Cobb Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Investigators and Carroll County Deputies. Sosebee led law enforcement in a pursuit that extended across two counties and ended as Sosebee fled from the vehicle he was in and attempted to hide inside a gas station off Highway 27 in Carroll County. The gas station was surrounded and Sosebee was taken into custody without incident.
Sosebee was booked into the Carroll County Jail and then transported back to the Cobb County Adult Detention Center charged with two counts of Probation Violation, Possession of Firearm/Knife during Commission of a Crime, and Aggravated Assault.
Congratulations to Deputy Pauch was selected and awarded the John Merchant Jr. Leadership Award and Deputy Johnson was awarded the Honor Student for his academic performance.
Great Work by the Fugitive Unit and United States Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force on the arrest of a former cult leader and fugitive from justice Anna Elizabeth Young. While residing in Alachua County, Florida, and running a “religious boarding school” Young aka “Mother Anna” was charged with felony child abuse for bathing a 12 year old female victim in a steel tub with chemicals causing severe chemical burns to the child. Young had fled from Florida and was located and captured 8 years later in an attic at a relative’s house in Illinois. Young was then extradited back to Florida where she was convicted and served time.
The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office (FL) developed new information recently during an investigation and were able to substantiate that Young had not only tortured children, but had committed Premeditated First degree homicide-murder of a child. A warrant was secured and the United States Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force was contacted and requested to locate and apprehend Young on the outstanding murder warrant, as Young was last known to have moved to Georgia.
The United States Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force in conjunction with the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit located Young at 174 Bridgestone Drive in Marietta, Georgia. (Young had married and living under the last name of Anderson) Surveillance was conducted at the residence and on 11/30/2017 the United States Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force and Cobb County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Units made contact with Young-Anderson at the residence and took her into custody without incident.

Great work by Cobb County Police in identifying 18 year old Dawson Wagner as a suspect in the death of 17 year old Naseer Benefield in Mableton last month. Once police had a name and secured a warrant the CCSO Fugitive Squad and US Marshals Task Force went to work and it was not long before Wagner was spotted during a surveillance operation up in Canton. Good news is he was taken into custody without incident.
