Atlanta Rapper Ralo was denied bond on Tuesday and will remain in jail as a probe continues following his arrest at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport on April 15.

At the private airport in Georgia, the rapper Terrell Davis, known professionally as Ralo, was caught with $1 million worth of marijuana, The Source reported.

Meanwhile, another U.S. media outlet, WSBTV reported that agents also say Ralo and his alleged gang, nicknamed Famerica, shuttled over 900,000 pounds of high-grade pot on planes chartered by the rapper.

On Tuesday, Ralo was denied bond and will remain in prison as the police continue their investigation. Together with eight of his associates, Ralo is accused of smuggling marijuana from California to Atlanta, Georgia.

Last week, his apartment was raided. Ralo is suspected that he was trafficking marijuana from apartments he rented.

It has been reported that Ralo has made more than one trip to California to collect marijuana, considered to be Schedule 1 drug by the U.S. federal government.

On Jan. 1, California legalized the recreational use of marijuana.


Correction: The Puff Puff Post reported one of the figures from U.S. media WSBTV when the latter wrote on its page: “Agents say Davis and his alleged gang, nicknamed Famerica, shuttled over 900,000 pounds of high-grade pot worth nearly $2 million on planes chartered by Davis.” We realized this figure is a big underestimation.
