[artist id="1163822"]Jadakiss[/artist] says he has nothing to do with activities that led to two people being arrested for drug possession in an apartment leased under his name on Saturday.
Yonkers police raided an apartment leased to the MC and found seven pounds of marijuana, five grams of heroin and about $42,000 in cash, along with "other items," according to a police press release. They were led to a building at 1 Van Der Donk Street after housing-unit officers stopped a suspicious vehicle out front on Friday. According to the report, an investigation "revealed the presence of marijuana inside the vehicle." The driver was arrested and a passenger was taken in after a short foot pursuit.
On Wednesday (August 26), Jadakiss told MTV News that he was not present at the time and has not visited the home for months.
"What happened on Saturday was an unfortunate situation, but one in which I have no involvement in," 'Kiss told MTV News exclusively Wednesday afternoon. "Since the release of my recent album [article id="1606872"]Last Kiss,[/article] I have been on the road touring and promoting my project. I am focused on my performance schedule and career."
Gabriel R. Henriquez, 39, was charged with second-degree criminal possession of marijuana, second degree assault and obstructing governmental administration in the second-degree. Alberto Lajara, 25, was taken into custody for criminal possession of marijuana in the fifth degree and disorderly conduct, according to the report. Yonkers police say the investigation is ongoing.
'Kiss has, indeed, been on the road this summer. While a tour planned with Cam'ron dubbed "The Bosses" did not take place, the pair performed several concerts together.
