FORT LAUDERDALE — Rapper Trick Daddy, who was arrested yesterday and charged with three counts of possession of drugs and guns, was picked up outside his house by the Broward County Drug Task Force.
Its members suspected the singer, whose real name is Maurice Young, was running a drug grow house at 16573 SW 19th St. in Miramar.
Records show the house, worth about $500,000, is owned by Trick Daddy and a woman.
According to the 39-year-old thug-life singer’s arrest report, he was nabbed as he pulled out of his driveway in a car. He was also charged with driving with a suspended license.
Broward County Sheriff’s deputies were staking out the place on suspicion Trick Daddy was running a serious drug operation there. Records show they’d obtained a warrant for drug dogs to sniff out his property.
After stopping the rapper, according to the report, he offered some information.
He denied running a grow house, but admitted to deputies that they might find some cocaine and marijuana roaches in the home.
Deputies then tossed the house. They reported finding 1 gr of coke in the nightstand of Trick’s bedroom, a 9mm Sig Sauer under the bed’s pillows and ammo in another bedroom.
The singer is a convicted felon and cannot own firearms and ammunition.
The singer of I’m a Thug is out on $6,100-bond.
