Cops are dropping the hammer on Young Thug … he’s reportedly been slapped with drugs and weapons violations after a raid at his home.
Police executed a search warrant on Wednesday at the mansion in Sandy Springs, outside Atlanta. TMZ has learned cops issued the following arrest warrants after the search:
– felony cocaine possession
– felony marijuana possession
– 3 counts felony gun possession
Thugger and Birdman have also been tied to the alleged Lil Wayne tour bus shooter.
YT was already in police custody. As we told you … U.S. Marshals arrested him Wednesday for terroristic threats involving a mall security officer.
The explosive allegation comes in the indictment for Jimmy Carlton Winfrey — the guy busted for firing at Wayne’s bus back in April. According to the docs, moments after Winfrey shot up the bus in Atlanta … he called a phone owned by Birdman.
Adding further suspicion — after that call, Winfrey drove to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel … where Wayne’s entourage stopped after the shooting. Cops don’t say it in the indictment, but the insinuation is Winfrey was told to go finish the job … but as we reported, police had met Wayne’s entourage at the hotel to investigate the shooting.
TMZ broke the story … Winfrey has been Young Thug’s tour manager. Cops also point out that Winfrey is seen brandishing an assault rifle in Thug’s “Halftime” music video … which includes lyrics threatening to shoot Wayne in the head.
Birdman and Thug have not been charged with any crime — but the indictment makes it clear cops think they’re closely tied to the shooter.
