Rapper Arrested After Mansion Raid

(PatriotNews.net) – Rapper Sean Kingston was arrested in California on May 23rd, following a raid at his Florida mansion earlier that day.

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, police in Fort Irwin, CA, arrested Kisean Anderson, better known as Sean Kingston, without any trouble on charges of fraud and theft. He will be booked into a San Bernardino, CA jail, authorities said.

The raid at Kingston’s mansion in Southwest Ranches involved deputies from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and the Davie Police SWAT team. Kingston’s mother, Janice Turner, was also taken into custody at his South Florida home that morning.

The investigation resulted in Turner’s arrest on numerous fraud and theft charges.

Kingston posted on his Instagram stories, stating that he and his mother were fine and that their lawyers were handling everything.

Kingston, whose full name is Kisean Paul Anderson, gained fame in 2007 with his hit single, “Beautiful Girls.” He has since collaborated with big names like Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and Nicki Minaj.

In court, Kingston waived his right to fight extradition and agreed to be turned over to Florida authorities. He signed papers agreeing to skip extradition hearings, as confirmed by San Bernardino courts and sheriff representatives.

Kingston remained in a Southern California jail, awaiting transfer to Florida. His mother, Janice Turner, was arrested when a SWAT team raided Kingston’s rented mansion in Fort Lauderdale. Both are charged with running an organized scheme to defraud, grand theft, and identity theft. The arrest warrants allege they stole money, jewelry, a Cadillac Escalade, and furniture.

The warrants detail alleged thefts from October to March, including nearly $500,000 in jewelry, over $200,000 from Bank of America, $160,000 from an Escalade dealer, more than $100,000 from First Republic Bank, and $86,000 from a custom bed maker.

Kingston was already on two years’ probation for trafficking stolen property. His mother had previously pleaded guilty to bank fraud in 2006 for stealing over $160,000, serving nearly 1.5 years in prison.
