Authorities say that Rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie was arrested in New Jersey on Monday in relation to an alleged gun and drug possession charges.
During a press release on Tuesday, the Bergen County Prosecutors Office announced that the Bronx native, whose real name is Artist J. Dubose, was charged with one count of unlawful possession of a handgun as well as one count of unlawful possession of a handgun as well as one count of possession of marijuana, which is a disorderly person offense.
The rapper was not the only one charged, his manager, Samblou Camara, was also charged with one count of possession of marijuana. One of Dubose’s security guards, Quashaun Hagler, was hit with three counts of unlawful possession of a handgun and one count of possession of a large-capacity magazine. On Monday, Camara and Hagler were arrested along with Dubose.
The two arrests went down after cops from the New York Police Department and Demarest, New Jersey, Police Department executed a search warrant on Dubose’s home. Police claim to have found four handguns there; a Ruger .380, a Glock .40, an H&K 9mm, and a Smith and Wesson 9mm — as well as hollow-point bullets and various high-capacity magazines. Police also alleged that they discovered pot, hash oil edibles, and drug paraphernalia “commonly associated with the distribution of controlled dangerous substances.”
Camara was also arrested after New Jersey police searched his Bergenfield, New Jersey home. Police claim to have found pot and hash oil edibles. Prosecutors say that all of the arrests happened “without incident.” Dubose, Camara, and Hagler were released on their own recognizance following their arrests.
According to Northjersey.com, a day before the arrests, gunfire erupted across from the Teaneck, New Jersey, club where Dubose was feting his 25th birthday, but that this shooting and these arrests were not related.
