Jadakiss is putting some space between himself and a drug bust that happened at his apartment last week.
Police arrested Alberto Lajara and Gabriel R. Henriquez at a Yonkers, New York, apartment leased under Jada’s legal name on August 21, AllHipHop.com reports. It’s assumed that the men had been living in the apartment at the time of the arrest.
Authorities searched the home on Saturday and their investigation turned up five grams of heroin, more than six pounds of weed and $40,000. Now, Jada is trying to make it clear that he had nothing to do with last week’s run-in.
"What happened on Saturday was an unfortunate situation but one in which I have no involvement in,” Jadakiss told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “Since the release of my recent album The Last Kiss, I have been on the road touring and promoting my project. I am focused on my performance schedule and career."
The statement is in line with assertions from authorities that they weren’t looking for him anyway. Alberto and Gabriel weren’t so lucky, though. Both men have been smacked with a litany of charges including felony possession of marijuana, second-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
