Kodak Black Blames GPS For Weapons And Drugs Arrest
Kodak Black was arrested last week for weapons and drugs possession at the Untied States-Canada border. According to Rap-Up, Kodak was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of marijuana after he and three others tried to enter the U.S. using the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge. However, the rapper was unaware that he was leaving the country and didn’t realize it until he was asked to present a passport at the Canadian border. Kodak is placing blame on the navigation system in his car for leading him into Canada. The rapper said that while he was driving from Detroit to Boston, he entered the destination into his GPS, which gave him the most direct route to drive through Canada, back to New York and onto Massachusetts.
Police allegedly recovered marijuana and a Glock 9mm pistol in the Cadillac Escalade, which was driven by Kodak. They also found two loaded handguns and a third in the trunk of a Porsche, driven by one of his associates.
He was released from custody after posting $20,000 bail.
Although Kodak was released, he was forced to cancel his shows in Boston and Connecticut last Wednesday (April 17th) and Thursday (April 18th). Complex has also reported that Kodak’s upcoming performances in Montreal and Toronto are “unlikely” following his Canadian border arrest. Apparently, Canada Border Services Agency sources said that anyone crossing into the country must meet certain requirements, and “involvement in criminal activity” is a reason to be blocked from entry. Police sources told TMZ that it is “unlikely” that Kodak will be able to make the shows.
In other news, according to Complex, prosecutors are looking to see if Kodak violated the terms of his sexual misconduct bond case due to his recent border arrest. If prosecutors conclude that he violated his bond conditions, a hearing will be held and prosecutors will request that a judge revoke his bond.
