A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie was arrested on gun and drug charges in northern New Jersey, Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office announced Tuesday.
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, born J. Dubose, was charged with one count of unlawful possession of a handgun and one count of possession of marijuana following a search warrant at his Demarest home Monday. The authorities seized four guns — a Ruger .380 handgun, a Glock .40 caliber handgun, an H&K 9mm handgun, and a Smith and Wesson 9mm handgun.
Hollow point bullets, various high capacity magazines, as well as marijuana, hashish oil edibles and drug paraphernalia commonly associated with the distribution of controlled dangerous substances were also found, prosecutors say.
A personal security guard at the home, 33-year-old Quashaun Hagler, was also charged with illegal weapons possession, according to NorthJersey.com. A Boogie’s manager, Samblou Camara, was slapped with drug charges after cops searched his home in Bergenfield and found marijuana.
The arrests came a day after a shooting broke out across the street from a Teaneck nightclub where the rapper was celebrating his 25th birthday. But the authorities said A Boogie’s arrest was not related to the shooting, which left an 18-year-old man critically injured. He is also not a suspect. “He is not a suspect, nor did we believe him to be a suspect,” Chief Detective Robert Anzilotti said of the rapper.
