Kodak Black was arrested earlier this week after the authorities learned that he was in possession of illegal weapons.
The rapper was arrested by federal agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Marshals and Miami-Dade’s Northside gangs unit. He is facing separate weapons charges in Miami-Dade state criminal court. As a convicted felon, Black is not allowed to own a gun under Florida state law,Miami Herald reports.
From his illegal purchase of the gun he received three 9mm handgun, a .380-caliber handgun and a semiautomatic Mini Draco weapon — one of which was left at the scene of a recent shooting in nearby Pompano Beach, Brown said. Authorities are investigating three unrelated shootings in the Miami area with possible connection.
Recently on his court he pleaded not-guilty, according to the ABC news U.S. Magistrate Judge Edwin Torres granted the 21-year-old Black release on $550,000 bond with house arrest, although he faces other criminal cases that could keep him locked up.
