Gillie Da Kid Arrested During Philly Drug Bust
According to the Philadelphia Daily News the arrests came about after FBI Agents Garrett Kerley and Lynn Monahan visited Levick Street in Oxford Circle to speak to residents about a December drug bust, which resulted in $6.1 million in crack cocaine being seized.
While canvassing the neighborhood the agents learned of suspicious activity at two homes on the 1100 block of Passmore Street. Capt. Chris Werner told the Daily News that the agents passed the information on to Sgt. Robert Friel and Officer Jeff Galaska from his division, Narcotics Field Unit 2 and officers set up a stakeout of the homes. After a man drove up and left one of the houses carrying boxes, Highway Patrol was contacted and pulled over the driver. Once the team obtained search warrants, they discovered 89 pounds of marijuana in the car and in the houses, valued at approximately $404,000.
"They were supplying numerous drug dealers all over the city, not just in the Northeast," Sgt. Robert Friel of Narcotics Field Unit 2 told the Daily News.
Officers arrested six people as they tried to leave the scene on Tuesday (February 8, 2007). Rapper Gillie Da Kid (Sar'd Nasir) was identified by police as the ringleader of the operation. Nasir formerly rapped with Philly group Major Figgas. Also arrested were Mark Jeffries, 41; Rhashima Brown, 34; Regina Little, 27; Garnell Brown, 25, and Izeem Ruffings, 25 - all of Philadelphia. Each was charged with conspiracy and possessing narcotics with intent to deliver.
Gillie has been making headlines lately for his ongoing feud with Cash Money's Lil' Wayne. He has released several diss songs against Weezy and claims that he ghostwrote many of his rhymes.
