Rapper arrested on weapon charges in NYC


Rapper Roddy Ricch has been arrested on weapons charge in New York City.

According to the New York Police Department (NYPD), Ricch, whose real name is Rodrick Moore, 23, and two other men were inside an SUV, heading to the concert at CitiField when private security at a security checkpoint saw a gun in the vehicle.

He was busted in Queens on gun possession charges while on his way to perform at the Governors Ball this weekend.

However, a Clerk at Queens Criminal Court said that the charges were dropped on Sunday.

Police were called and found a loaded gun with nine rounds of ammunition, as well as a large-capacity magazine in the car.

Ricch, his bodyguard, Michael Figuroa of Brooklyn, and driver Carlos Collins of Westchester County were charged with criminal possession of a weapon, possession of a large capacity ammunition feeding device, and unlawful possession of an ammunition feeding device.

Ricch’s performance at the Governors Ball was canceled.

When the District Attorney’s office was asked why the charges were dropped, there was no response.
