Love & Hip Hop's Yancy's Baby Deddy In Jail for Selling a LOT of That Stuff?
Harris, who lives downstate, and others were originally indicted on the drug charges in the fall, according to records. Authorities allege that the three trafficked $2.5 million worth of drugs between 2005 and August 2012.
Harris was key to the popular VH1 show’s recent season. His arrest in New Jersey on allegations of sexual abuse of a 15-year-old lit up the online hip hop gossip sites, but the Rochester-based drug charges — though months old — have remained out of the public sphere.
While court records provide few details about the criminal case against Harris and his co-defendants, Ronald Walker and Tyrus Harris, the indictment shows that authorities have already seized more than $1.5 million from safety deposit boxes connected with the case.
Also seized was nearly $407,000 worth of jewelry and watches, including a $60,000 Rolex and another $35,000 Rolex.
Authorities are also pushing for the forfeiture of properties in Georgia and Baltimore. Harris surrendered for arrest on the Rochester-area indictment on Jan. 24. He is expected to be arraigned in Rochester after a current trial in New Jersey. Harris’ co-defendants have pleaded not guilty at arraignments in Rochester, records show.
