As of Friday morning, the FBI is still looking for two Georgia men connected to the Georgia street gang called the Ghost Face Gangsters.
The FBI told Channel 2 Action News that they have arrested six of the eight wanted members tied to this gang.
The two remaining suspects who have yet to be arrested are David Young and Michael Provenzano, the FBI said.
Two of the suspects, Christopher Thompson and Ashley Deen were arrested in McIntosh County by authorities after they allegedly committed an armed robbery Tuesday morning.

According to the FBI, the other six suspects have been arrested in different counties across southeast Georgia.
Jimmy Reynolds and Samantha Russell were captured in recent days by authorities, while two other suspects, Tonya Cox and Juan Everette, turned themselves in to agents on Tuesday.
The FBI says it worked with McIntosh and Glynn County on these arrests.
Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne has been extensively reporting about the dangerous Ghostface Gangsters gang since 2014.
Unlike almost all other gangs, which originate on the streets and end up in prisons, Winne says the Ghostface Gangsters started in the Cobb County Jail and then made their way to the streets.
“My experience suggests Ghostface has a rigid hierarchical structure, with rules that these lawbreakers, ironically, pay a lot of attention to,” Winne said.
In March 2015, members of the gang faced a racketeering indictment. The gang was said to be more than 400 members strong in the state at the time and heavily involved in the drug trade.
Winne got an exclusive jailhouse interview with one of the suspects. He interviewed Patty Green in the Newton County Detention Center, who told Winne she was a grandmother and a mother.
“I’m definitely not a racketeer. I’m not a criminal,” Green said.
A District Attorney’s Office investigator said a racketeering indictment painted Green as a key associate of the Ghostface Gangsters.
“Have you ever heard of the Ghostface gang?” Winne asked Green.
“I’ve heard of a lot of different gangs, but I don’t believe they’re really gangs,” Green said.
Green was released from prison on Nov. 15, 2019 and is currently on parole, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections website.
