Federal Agents Arrest and Charge Rappers with Drug Crimes

Law Enforcement Officials Say Crimes Were Described in 2016 Video

Federal Agents Arrest and Charge Rappers with Drug CrimesCiting a YouTube video made in 2016, federal agents arrested two local rappers and booked them on drug charges. YGG, whose real name is Davante Harrison, was arrested at his Cockeysville apartment on Monday, November 25, after agents found heroin and an unknown white powder in his rental car. The same day, Damont Brown was arrested in Owings Mills on a drug charge. Harrison and Brown made a video in 2016 called “Errday,” which authorities say chronicles their illegal activity.

When arrested, Harrison also had nearly $10,000 in cash and a loaded .40 caliber Glock pistol. Officers found approximately 40 grams of heroin at Brown’s apartment, as well as a sifter, mixing bowl, and digital scale. A third defendant was arrested in the Riverside neighborhood, allegedly in possession of almost 500 grams of heroin and other drugs.

Officials contend that Harrison and Brown are associated with the “Trained to Go” crew they allege has been running the heroin and cocaine trade in Baltimore’s Westside for years. They say Harrison offered a bounty of $20,000 to anyone willing to kill a police informant working against the Trained to Go crew. The informant was slain on city streets a year ago.
