Rapper Sean Kingston arrested after raid on Florida mansion: Sheriff


He was arrested on multiple fraud and theft charges, officials said.

Rapper Sean Kingston was arrested in California following a SWAT raid at his rented home in South Florida, the Broward County Sheriff's Office said Thursday.

Investigators said in a press release that 34-year-old Kingston, whose real name is Kyson Anderson, was arrested “without incident” in Fort Irwin, California, on multiple charges of fraud and theft and will be held at the San Bernardino Jail.

Earlier on Thursday, Miami ABC News affiliate WPLG reported that the rapper's mother, Janice Turner, was arrested on fraud charges following a raid at her home in Southwest Ranches, Florida.

Southwest Ranches is located approximately 22 miles southwest of Miami, Florida.

“We are aware of some of the allegations that have been made against both of them,” Robert Rosenblatt, the attorney representing the rapper and his mother, told WPLG.

“We look forward to considering these issues in court and are confident of a successful resolution for Sean and his mother,” Rosenblatt said.

Following Turner's arrest, Kingston posted on Instagram, “People love the negative energy! I'm good, and so is my mom! … My lawyers are handling everything right now.”

ABC News has contacted Kingston's rep for comment.
