Pop Smoke arrested for stealing car

Rising rap star Pop Smoke was arrested yesterday at JFK airport in NY after arriving back from Europe. He is being charged with interstate transport of a stolen vehicle.

He allegedly moved a stolen Rolls Royce between state lines last November thru December. The Rolls Royce valued at $375,000 was loaned to the rapper by its owner in California for use in a music video. A source close to the case told the media the rapper and owner had a verbal agreement that the vehicle would be returned the following day, and in exchange, the owner would get VIP access to a future Pop Smoke concert.

The owner reported the vehicle missing to the Los Angeles Police Department in November. When the vehicle was recovered in front of Pop Smoke’s house, the source said Alabama license plates were covering the original California plates and the windows had been tinted.


Pop Smoke pleaded not guilty during his arraignment in Brooklyn on Friday and was released on a $250,000 bond. He will return to federal court on Tuesday.
