Update: DMX Found Hiding Out In Scott Storch’s Mansion

[Editor's Note: This story has been updated as more details have unfolded]

After repeated trouble with the law, Yonkers rapper DMX earned his latest non-rap related headlines after missing a court date in Arizona last Friday (12/5). As XXLmag.com reported earlier this morning, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department was offering a $5,000 reward for info leading to his arrest. And now according to TMZ the search party has been called off.

The Yonkers native was snagged by the FBI this afternoon not in New York City or AZ, but across the country in Palm Island, off of the Florida coastline. Ironically, he was found in producer Scott Storch’s mansion – another fallen hip-hop star who has been experiencing his own legal issues as of late.

“He got picked up at Scott Storch’s house this afternoon,” X’s lawyer Bradford Cohen confirmed with XXL. “I don’t know if Scott Storch was home at the time.”

“He was in rehab prior to that in Florida,” Cohen cleared up. “I don’t know when he left the rehab facility.”

The arrest is said to have gone without incident, but marks yet another day that the once prominent MC finds himself behind bars, this time in a Miami-Dade County Jail.

The rapper was reportedly tipped off by a woman who heard about the $5,000 cash reward. The warrant was issued after he missed a court date in Maricopa County for drug, identity theft and animal cruelty charges. According to Cohen, X is scheduled to appear in bond court tomorrow morning. -Adam Fleisher with additional reporting by Clover Hope

    Hope DMX can get things straightened out. He’s a true talent on the mic, but not in the kennel or in the car.

    Khia isn’t broke you clown. She can’t sell here but she’s made deep 6 figures to 7 figures over the last 3-4 years touring, the latter half probably exclusively overseas..

    but if she doesn’t save then you could say in 5 more years she could be broke..

    Scott must not be that broke if he can still afford the monthly mortgage on a FL mansion. That at least 20-25k a month. LOL
