YG Arrested Following Raid At His Home, Will Be Booked For Robbery
West Coast rapper YG is currently in custody after police raided his San Fernando Valley home.
According to TMZ Friday (Jan. 24), YG was arrested following a raid in his home and was being taken to a local jail to be booked for robbery.
Before the arrest, police reportedly popped up at his home at 4 a.m. Authorities had a search warrant and an arrest warrant that was connected to a robbery case.
The story is still developing. But speaking of robberies, YG said earlier this month that he was robbed of $400,000 worth of jewelry while bringing in the new year in London. He filed a police report in L.A., weeks after the incident happened overseas. He alleged that a briefcase holding expensive jewelry was stolen from his hotel room, but he had no idea who took it because people were in and out of his room.
Meanwhile, his Escalade is also under investigation after it was allegedly involved in a fatal shooting. His SUV was the subject of a high-speed police chase back in July. Someone in the car allegedly started shooting, and a bullet hit and killed a 65-year-old man who was on a bike in the area.
Most recently, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept revealed that it’s getting closer to finding out the details of what really happened. Still, the department did ask the community to help out with closing the case.
YG has insisted that he had nothing to do with that incident.
He told TMZ back then,
“I was nowhere near the scene of this incident and had been in a recording studio all day in Hollywood. I was there until after midnight on the Fourth of July and didn’t learn of these events until after they happened.”
That’s not the only legal issue YG has been connected to.
Shortly after the incident involving his SUV, a home that YG leased was raided. One person was taken into custody for a weapons charge. YG wasn’t at the home at the time.
