Rapper G Herbo turned himself in to federal agents in Los Angeles after proclaiming his innocence relating to a plethora of federal fraud charges.
The Chicago, Illinois native, who was just named to Forbes magazine’s 30 Under 30 list of influential young stars, stands accused of one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and 2 counts of aiding and abetting aggravated identity theft as part of an alleged 4-year scam involving stolen credit cards.
Herbo and 5 others are charged with using stolen credit cards to purchase designer puppies, rent private jets and limousines as well as finance trips to Jamaica and rent a villa there.
On Wednesday, Dec. 2, a representative for Herbo, real name Herbert Randall Wright III, denied the criminal claims, which were filed in Massachusetts. Herbo’s lawyer insisted the Chicago gang banger “looks forward to establishing his innocence in court”.
The PTSD star is alleged to have worked with his music promoter Antonio Strong and various other members of his crew to defraud numerous business owners by making purchases with stolen credit cards.
Strong was arrested in September and charged with a string of crimes, including wire fraud.
Rapper Casanova, real name Caswell Senior, was arrested earlier this week on RICO and racketeering charges related to criminal activities committed by his gang “Untouchable Gorilla Stones”, including the murder of a 15 year old boy.
