The rapper was taken into custody today and charged with Interstate Transportation of Stolen Motor Vehicle.
Pop Smoke was arrested this morning after authorities alleged that he transported a stolen 2019 Rolls Royce Wraith from California to New York. According to TMZ, Pop Smoke first met the owner of the RR at a recording studio in LA, and the two made a “verbal agreement” for Smoke to use the car for a video shoot. In exchange, her promised the car’s owner special treatment at one of his concerts. He also allegedly agreed to return the car the next day, but fell short on his end of the agreement.
The owner used GPS to tracked the car to Arizona and then had it reported stolen. Then last month, the car owner noticed the Rolls in one of Smoke’s IG posts with the geotag as New York. The post has since been removed by Smoke. The rapper was apprehended today at JFK Airport on his way home from Paris Fashion Week. He’s set to be arraigned Friday afternoon in Brooklyn.
