(AllHipHopNews) Lil Poopy’s father Luis “Fat Louis” Rivera was arrested in Boston earlier today (June 10), as part of a 14-month investigation of high ranking gang members according to the Boston Herald.
The investigation spanned from the city to as far as New Hampshire and Rhode Island, and included members of several gangs.
According to authorities, the gangs targeted in the bust operated from Chelsea, Brockton, Malden, East Boston, Revere and Everett.
In the early morning raids, 40 members of the 18th Street Gang, East Side Money Gang and the Boylston Gang were arrested by 400 federal, state and local law enforcement officers.
“I just want to send a message to anyone who wants to be involved in gangs: We’re going to be on you, we’re going to find out who you are, and we’re going to take you down like we did today,” said Boston police Commissioner William B. Evans.
The suspects arrested are believed to have been operating a criminal organization that trafficked drugs and guns throughout Eastern Massachusetts.
Court documents indicate Rivera as a cocaine source for the Boylston Street Gang.
This is not Rivera’s first brush with the law.
Brockton police filed a child abuse complaint against Rivera in 2013, after videos of his elementary school aged son Lil Poopy went viral, featuring the youngster rapping about cocaine and guns.
Ultimately, Rivera was cleared of any abuse or neglect by The Department of Children and Families.
