Rapper Kodak Black and three others were captured after they purportedly tried crossing the U.S.-Canada border near Buffalo with firearms and weed, authorities said Thursday.
The state police said Kodak, 21, and Jeantony Saintmelus, 22, were booked on suspicion of criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of cannabis. Stetson J. President, 24, and Madarrow D. Smith, 20, were arrested for alleged criminal possession of a firearm.
According to a statement by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, “During the initial inspection, the U.S. citizens admitted to being in possession of marijuana and firearms.” “During a secondary inspection, it was revealed that the weapons were possessed unlawfully in New York State and subsequently the marijuana, firearms, and subjects were turned over to the New York State Police for further processing,” they informed.
The arrests caused Kodak to miss shows at the House of Blues in Boston on Wednesday night.
