Ralo’s Atlanta Apartment Complex Raided by FBI and ATF After Recent Arrest
Following Ralo's recent arrest on Sunday (April 15), an apartment complex he owns in Atlanta was raided by the FBI and ATF, as well as agents from the Department of Homeland Security.
According to a report from WSB-TV in Atlanta, the raid occurred around 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday (April 18). Residents of the complex say they awoke to helicopters and agents kicking in doors as a result of the raid, which is confirmed to be related to Ralo's arrest.
“It scared me," neighbor Tony Daniels said. "I jumped up and looked out the window and seen police everywhere. There were sirens going on, helicopters flying and doors kicking in."
While authorities did not reveal what was seized during the Wednesday raid, they could be seen leaving with one of the Diary of the Streets 3 rapper's Islamic flags. Federal charges are expected but authorities would not give information about the ongoing investigation.
According to the DeKalb County website, Ralo was booked on Sunday (April 15) around 8 a.m. and appears to be being held without bail. The rapper was charged with conspiracy to commit a felony, which was later dropped. WSB-TV confirms the arrest took place at the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport after authorities discovered a large amount of marijuana on the rapper.
Friends of Ralo say they know nothing about the allegations but claim the rapper is well-liked in the community. "The people in the community love him," said Haroun Wakil, who has worked with Ralo during events for the neighborhood. "I've seen people change their lives just because of him."
