(AllHipHop News) Los Angeles rapper Guerrilla Black is back behind bars, after being arrested for his role in another credit card scam this morning (January 16).

Guerrilla Black, born Charles Tony Williamson, was arrested by Manhattan Beach Police, for his role in a credit card operation that was earning him more than $20,000 per month.

According to Manhattan Beach Police, the rapper and five other people were arrested for their roles in the criminal operation, which used stolen information to manufacture phony credit cards.

Seven search warrants were executed throughout Los Angeles County to dismantle the criminal enterprise, which was investigated by the United States Secret Service Department, along with the Manhattan Beach Police Department.

In July, Guerilla Black was arrested and charged with numerous counts of identity theft and fraud, for his role in an illegal credit card manufacturing ring that operated out of Seattle, Washington.

    That Rap money must have slowed up dude really is a one trick pony and couldn’t even do that all that well SMH

  • therealest1

    Wow, did this guy not learn from the previous similar transgression? Or was he that desperate for money to rehash a crime he already got busted for?

    • Q.

      The latter. Crime is a Risk/Reward endeavor. 20 K/mo. without having to risk your life in the streets is an excellent R/R ratio! Not co-signing these scammers…just saying.

    • It says he was arrested in July though. If the Secret Service was investigating him for this case, I’m thinking it started before July. Don’t think he got arrested for one than started on the next. He was probably involved in both (allegedly) rings simultaneously but the SS took their time on arresting him on this one

  • This is the only time I agree with freeing a criminal…He ought to be free and clear of charges because all Banks listed above been robbing us for years.

  • Mike Swiff

    Here is the problem: Black is suppose to be from the streets right? Black is suppose to be a Hood Ni66a right? Black is suppose a rapper?? Listen these foolz all needed to get their asses caught by using things that can be tracked, These fools were using stolen information to manufacture phony credit cards. My Dude Guerrilla; Credit Cards? all trackable/ Feds are involved…Damn shame nobody in the click had a half a grain of rice as a brain to say “Yoooh naah we cant do that, shit is trackable!” Dummies deserve what they get! But it goes with hip hop though Black is right on point, this is what hip hop “rappers” do they use other people’s identity! smirk…

    • I would say if your really going to do it, do it once or twice..make some money, and then use that money to invest yourself in a business, whether it be illegal or legal.. they are going to catch you, it’s inevitable.

  • firehawk17
