Police have raided an apartment leased to rapper Jadakiss and seized 5 grams of heroin, 6.5 pounds of marijuana and $40,000 cash from the Yonkers New York residence, say published reports.
According to sources, Jadakiss was not at the home at the time of the raid and he is not wanted by police.
The cash and drugs were found in a Van der Donck Street apartment and the police executed a search warrant after an incident on Friday. The police said they saw an individual in a car that smelled like marijuana. They arrested 25-year-old Alberto Lajara and charged him with fifth degree criminal possession of marijuana and disorderly conduct.
A passenger, Gabriel R. Henriquez, 39, attempted to allude police and was subsequently charged with felonious second-degree criminal possession of marijuana and second-degree assault as well as second-degree obstructing governmental administration, a misdemeanor.
After the Friday encounter, the police searched Jadakiss’ apartment, where they found the illegal substances. The case remains open.
Jadakiss was unavailable for comment at press time.
