Rapper Soulja Boy charged with possessing gun stolen from Huntington Beach police after being arrested for violating gun probation.
Rapper Soulja Boy was charged on Monday with possessing an assault weapon and receiving stolen property following a December raid at his Hollywood home by police, Los Angeles prosecutors said.
The rapper, whose real name is DeAndre Cortez Way, was also charged with being in possession of a firearm while on probation, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
He faces up to four years in prison if convicted on all of the charges at trial.
Prosecutors say Soulja Boy was arrested at his home on Dec. 15 after police found him in possession of a Mini Draco AR-15 assault weapon and a Glock handgun.
In addition to the two felony charges, Soulja has also been charged with a misdemeanor for receiving stolen property; police allege that one of the guns found in his house was reportedly stolen from a Huntington Beach police vehicle, the district attorney’s office said
