(AllHipHop News) Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy is in trouble with the law after getting caught with marijuana.

According to, the 21-year-old was caught with four other men in a car in Temple, Georgia.

Police decided to conduct a search when they noticed the smell of marijuana emanating from the vehicle.

A search of the vehicle turned up a large amount of marijuana, $70,000 in cash, and guns.

Police immediately arrested Soulja Boy, born DeAndre Cortez Way. Soulja Boy is currently being held in the Carroll City jail. In February 2010, Soulja Boy was given 12 months probation, over an incident in Henry County, Georgia.
