Soulja Boy Arrested After Cops Search Home for Evidence of Kidnapping
Soulja Boy just got arrested after police visited his house and found ammunition, which he isn’t supposed to have because of his firearms-related probation, last month.
Police reportedly found ammunition at the rapper’s Los Angeles-area home while executing a search warrant in response to a woman’s claim that she was held hostage in his garage. Soulja Boy was convicted in 2014 for a firearm-related charge; the terms of his probation, which was extended in 2017 after an additional conviction for firearm possession, bar him from possessing guns or ammo.
TMZ says San Fernando Valley police found ammunition in Soulja’s home while searching his house after they obtained a search warrant in February. They got the warrant after a woman claimed she had been kidnapped by the rapper (Soulja denied the allegations).
Soulja’s probation stems from the time police found a weapon in his home in 2016 following a search that was prompted by the rapper threatening people online. It was a violation of Soulja’s probation to have any weapons in his home, so the judge extended his probation at the time and once again reiterated that he wasn’t allowed to own any weapons.
As for why Soulja’s most recent arrest happened now instead of at the time authorities reportedly found the ammunition last month, the news outlet said police waited to make their move because they knew Soulja would be going to visit his probation officer in San Fernando Valley and that it would be the easier to take him in once he made the visit.
