Bankroll Freddie was arrested in Jonesboro, Arkansas on Wednesday as part of a major federal drug and gun bust conducted across the state.
The rapper and his father, Freddie Gladney Jr., were among more than 45 people swept up in the action according to a copy of the federal indictment.
According to the indictment:
From March 2021 through Oct. 2022 the defendants allegedly conspired to distribute and possess cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana and that Freddie possessed an arsenal of firearms that included at least three 9mm pistols, two rifles and machine guns “in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.”
Two FBI operations focused on two rival gangs in Arkansas, including the “Every Body Killas gang” (EBK) and the “Loady Murder Mobb gang.” A third operation, which was led by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), began in 2021 when the DEA found methamphetamine and fentanyl dealers in Central Arkansas with connections to several states.
The feds are said to have seized jewelry and cash from several of the defendants totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Freddie is facing at least 11 charges, which include: possession of cocaine, possession of crack cocaine, possession of marijuana, two counts of intent to distribute marijuana, knowingly and intentionally possession firearms, three counts of providing false/fictitious information on a gun purchase form, using guns for gun trafficking, using a telephone to traffic drugs and knowingly possessing one or more machine guns.
