The NYPD reportedly arrested Bobby Shmurda and several of his associates last night in New York City on a number of as yet unspecified charges. A spokesperson for the city’s special narcotics prosecutor confirmed the arrests to Wondering Sound, noting that the sweep was the result of a “long term investigation” that includes a sealed indictment.
The charges will become public tomorrow when Shmurda and the other defendants are arraigned, but the spokesperson said that the investigation revealed “a number of violent incidents as well as narcotics trafficking”. Several outlets have reported that executive Sha Money XL was also taken into custody and that a cache of weapons was confiscated, but this has not been confirmed. Bobby’s label Epic Records declined to comment on the case.
