Officials Release Photos Of Drugs Fetty Wap Was Arrested With

Stacks of packaged drugs, money, and machinery seized during rapper Fetty Wap's arrest are shown in new photos released by a US attorney's office.

The images show the serious nature of Fetty's alleged crimes.

Fetty, whose real name is Willie Junior Maxwell II, was arrested on October 29 this year along with five other men charged with federal drug charges.

He has since been granted bail at $500,000 subject to GPS monitoring, random drug-testing, and the surrender of his passport.

The authorities recovered around 16 kilos of cocaine, two kilos of heroin, fentanyl pills, two 9mm handguns, a rifle, .40 and .45 calibre pistols with ammunition, and around $1.5 million cash at the time of arrest.

The stash was used to run a suspected bi-coastal drug ring based out of New York state.

Fetty and his co-defendants are accused of obtaining Fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine on the US's West coast and distributing over 100 kilos of it on the East coast between June 2019 and June 2020.

The indictment referred to Fetty as a kilogramme-level redistributor for the trafficking organisation.

Fetty denied the charge but faces a max sentence of life imprisonment if found guilty.

FBI officer Michael Driscoll said: "The fact that we arrested a chart-topping rap artist and a corrections officer as part of the conspiracy illustrates just how vile the drug trade has become."

United States Attorney Breon Peace said: "As alleged, the defendants transported, distributed, and sold more than 100 kilogrammes of deadly and addictive drugs, including heroin and fentanyl, on Long Island, deliberately contributing to the opioid epidemic that has devastated our communities and taken too many lives.

"We will continue to work nonstop with our law enforcement partners to keep our neighbourhoods safe from the scourge of dangerous drugs and gun violence."

Fetty Wap became famous after releasing his debut, twice Grammy-nominated single Trap Queen in 2015.
