Things are continuing to look bleak for Atlanta rapper Ralo following the release federal documents that detail the specifics his arrest over the weekend.
The biggest bombshells in the affidavit, which was filed in U.S. District Court, allege that Ralo is the leader a criminal street gang and was responsible for smuggling nearly $2 million worth marijuana to Georgia, according to FOX 5 News.
WSB-TV reports Ralo and others have been charged with two counts conspiracy to distribute marijuana. His lawyer says Ralo will plead not guilty.
Last December, about $1 million worth marijuana (520 pounds) was seized not too far from Atlanta’s Fulton County Airport. Three people, allegedly linked to Ralo, were arrested after a surveillance team spotted 37 packages wrapped in holiday paper being transferred from a private plane to a van.
The van, which was registered to Ralo, was pulled over shortly after departing from the airport.
Ralo even appeared to allude to the loss the very next day on Instagram, writing, “I’ve lost more than a man have gained in a lifetime…Have you ever lost ah million dollars at one time???”
And on Sunday (April 15), a similar encounter took place when authorities were clued in to another alleged run from California to Georgia.
Authorities were on hand as the plane landed at Peachtree-DeKalb Airport, and reportedly went on to seize $840,000 worth marijuana. Nine people, including Ralo, were arrested at the airport.
Ralo and the others arrested remained in jail as Thursday (April 19).
The arrest the individuals at Peachtree-DeKalb Airport took place days before the FBI, police, and Homeland Security raided an Atlanta apartment complex owned by Ralo. It is still unclear what, if anything, was discovered during the raid.
