Dipset Member Max B. Held On $2 Million Bail For Murder
Police believe Max B. conspired to rob David Taylor and Allan "Jay" Plowden after his girlfriend, erotic dancer Gina Marie Conway, revealed that the men had flashed wads of cash and drove expensive cars.
Max B., 28, allegedly phoned Kelvin Leerdam of New York to help rob the men, who were staying in separate hotel rooms at the Holiday Inn in Fort Lee.
Police said Max B.'s girlfriend Conway knocked on Plowden's door around 4 am, while Leerdam waited in unseen area with a handgun.
Leerdam burst into Plowden's room and ordered him to call Taylor, who was shot in the head and murdered as he entered the room.
The pair then bound Plowden arms and legs with duct tied, before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police said the robbers missed $30,000 in cash, which they confiscated from Plowden, as he attempted to leave the scene of the crime.
Max B.'s attorney told the New Jersey Star Ledger that evidence against her client was mostly hearsay and that Max B. was not in New Jersey at the time of the shooting.
Police claim that calls from all of the suspects cell phones before and after the crime link Max B. to the murder.
Conway and Leerdam are also being held on murder, robbery and conspiracy charges.
Max B. has recorded on various records with fellow Dipset members Cam'ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana.
In October, the group released a mixtape titled The Diplomats & Max B Million Dollar Baby Radio, which was recorded prior to Max B.'s arrest.
