Member Of Dem Franchize Boyz Arrested In Drug Raid

A member of the

Atlanta-based group Dem Franchize Boyz was arrested yesterday (June 13) during

a police raid at a local recording studio.

Authorities confiscated

more than 11 pounds of marijuana, $150,000 in cash, two handguns and a stack

of pornography from the Making Money studio in Atlanta.

Sources told

that all of the recording equipment was also seized, as well as four cars. DFB member Maurice "Parlae" Gleaton, 23, was one of the men arrested and charged.

"They were

in the bathroom and they were trying to flush a lot of the drugs down the toilet,"

Atlanta Police Officer Richard Light told Channel 2 Action News. "They

just had too much and couldn't flush it all down."

Two children, who

were at the studio during the raid, were taken into custody and were later released

to their mother.

WSBTV reports that

eight people were arrested, including Making Big Moves Records CEO Anthony Blalock.

The raid occurred after authorities received a tip that drugs were being sold

at the studio.

The suspects tried

to get rid of the evidence after noticing officers on surveillance cameras,

according to police.
