Trick Daddy Arrested for Drug Possession

Trick Daddy, the rapper who discovered bisexual rapper Trina, was arrested on drug and weapon charges after police conducted a search of his Miramar, Florida home. The hip-hop star and convicted felon, whose real name is Maurice Young, was charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition, possession of cocaine, and driving with a suspended license. Because of his string of prior felony convictions, the 40-year-old isn’t allowed to possess guns. Trick was booked into Broward County Jail on Thursday (April 3) and and later bonded out. According to the arrest report, drug squad officers had the rapper’s home under surveillance that morning and approached him as he attempted to leave in a vehicle. Officers searched the residence where they uncovered illegal substances.

Ayvani Perez and Alberto Contreras-Rodriguez

When Ayvani Perez went missing on Tuesday, her Hispanic mother claimed 2 black men barged into her home, demanded cash and jewelry, before snatching the 14-year-old girl.
