The former crack cocaine kingpin of the late 90s has since been released.
Freeway Rick Ross was arrested in Sonoma County, California last week after he was caught with $100,000 of money suspected to be related to the sale of a controlled substance, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The former drug dealer — who was imprisoned from 1996 to 2009 for conspiring to buy more than 100 kilograms of cocaine — was also arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit a crime, according to a Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office arrest log.
Ross’ detention was later confirmed by Lt. Darin Dougherty, a spokesman with the sheriff’s office, however details about his arrest were not immediately available due to an ongoing investigation.
Freeway Rick Ross is no longer in custody, according to Sonoma County sheriff’s jail records.
UPDATE: Charges have been dropped.
