South Florida rapper Kodak Black was arrested Wednesday at the U.S. border in upstate New York on drug and weapons charges.
The rapper was with two other men in his vehicle trying to enter the country from Canada when they were detained. Four others were traveling in a separate car with Kodak.
During a search of the group’s Cadillac Escalade, which Kodak was driving, police found marijuana on the rapper and a gun inside the vehicle.
The Glock 9mm pistol had allegedly not been declared.
In the other vehicle, police claim they found two other weapons and more marijuana in the trunk.
Kodak Black was arrested for criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana. Two others were also arrested on weapons charges.
The driver of the other car was also arrested.
Black was released on bond Thursday.
