Bobby Shmurda is catching more heat. The “Hot Boy” and other members of his GS9 crew were arrested in New York City on Tuesday night.
According to TMZ, the 20-year-old, born Ackquille Pollard, was taken into custody during a sting involving gang-related shootings and drug trafficking.
While the indictment is sealed and specific charges have not been revealed, his arrest is part of a long-term investigation conducted by the NYPD and a special narcotics prosecutor.
“These arrests were the result of a long-term investigation,” Kati Cornell, director for NYC’s special narcotics prosecutor, told Wondering Sound. “The investigation did involve a number of violent incidents as well as narcotics trafficking.”
Shmurda was under surveillance by police and was arrested after leaving a recording studio near Radio City Music Hall. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday.
This is not Shmurda’s first run-in with the law. In October, he was arrested for smoking a joint while double parked in Brooklyn and again in June for possession of a weapon.
He and Migos recently announced plans for a collaborative mixtape under the name Shmigo Gang. His debut EP, Shmurda She Wrote, was released in November and spawned the top 10 hit “Hot Ni**a.”
