Nov 10, 2022

American rapper, Bankroll Freddie has been identified among 35 individuals arrested in Arkansas for allegedly conspiring to sell massive amounts of crack cocaine and cannabis.

 

According to TMZ,  hundreds of thousands of dollars in jewelry and cash were seized from the nearly three dozen people taken into custody on Wednesday, November 9. Freddie and his East AR crew are accused of running their alleged operation from March 2021 to October 2022.

 

The rapper Born Freddie Gladney also faces weapons charges because he allegedly possessed several firearms as part of their drug trafficking scheme.

 

According to HotNewHipHop, a Micro Draco AK-47 style pistol and a Polymer80 9 Glock clone handgun, along with 21 pounds of weed, were found inside his vehicle during a search after officers pulled him over for speeding. 

 

A judge later determined that the Quality Control artist would be given “every incentive to comply with his release conditions,” based on his clean record. Those conditions included maintaining a curfew, avoiding fraternizing with felons, and refraining from smoking cannabis or excessive drinking. 

 

Back in April, he was arrested on gun and drug charges after cops pulled him over for speeding in Arkansas. While searching his vehicle, officers found more than 21 pounds of marijuana a Micro Draco AK-47 style pistol and a Polymer 80 9 Glock clone handgun in his vehicle.

 

One month after the arrest, the court ruled that despite being in possession of the guns, Bankroll Freddie has no felony convictions and does not have a history of violence, and therefore poses no risk to the community.
