Bus on Kodak Black Tour Raided by FBI as Four Handguns Are Found and Arrests Made

Kodak Black probably had his fill of police run-ins.

Because on Wednesday, one of the buses that was traveling for his “Dying to Live Tour” was stopped in Washington, D.C., while it was parked outside a venue called The Anthem.

Black was performing inside at the time, and local police, as well as the FBI, searched the bus while those on it were handcuffed and made to sit outside. TMZ reports the FBI tried to get inside the venue but promoters wouldn’t let them in.

The Florida rapper wasn’t arrested after the search. In fact, he was able to leave Washington after the gig and travel to New York City for a Friday night show at United Palace.

That concert was originally supposed to be at the Hammerstein Ballroom but got moved for “unforeseen circumstances,” according to Live Nation.

Five people who were traveling with Black to D.C. got arrested after four Glock handguns with magazines were located. Police didn’t specify whether the rapper was traveling on the bus or if it was solely for his entourage.

Just last week, the “Testimony” rhymer was arrested at the U.S. border when he was driving himself from Detroit to Boston for a show.

Police found a Glock 9mm handgun in his vehicle, plus weed. Black was then charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana.

Three other men were also arrested after the bust, Stetson President and Madarrow Smith, who were in the car with Black. Jeantony Saintmelus, who was traveling in a Porsche behind the rapper, was taken in as well.

Reportedly, Black blamed GPS on the bust, since he used it to route him to the Boston show but didn’t realize it took him through Canada until it was too late.

Once Black tried to enter the States again he was stopped at the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge in Lewiston, New York. He and the other men that were arrested will be due in court this May to face the charges.
