The FBI has released several photos of the drugs and money seized in connection with Fetty Wap‘s alleged “drug ring” bust. The 30-year-old rapper was arrested last week on drug charges in connection to what authorities called an elaborate distribution scheme.
Now, law enforcement is showing what they collected from Fetty’s bust. Bags of cocaine, heroin, and fentanyl can be seen in custody, as is $1.5 million in cash. Weapons were also seized.

The Suffolk County District Attorney’s office shared photos showing at least 11 bags full of money. The evidence also consists of at least 5 bricks labeled AC. Authorities also took pictures of drug paraphernalia consisting of metal pipes and hollow boxes.
Fetty — whose real name is William Junior Maxwell II — was arrested, along with 5 others, by FBI agents at the Rolling Loud music festival in New York on October 28. At his arraignment, the Trap Queen rapper was ordered detained pending trial.
All 6 men, which included one New Jersey correctional officer, were charged with conspiring to distribute and possess controlled substances.Article continues below
According to ABC, five of the arrestees were also charged with using firearms in connection with the alleged drug trafficking ring. Officials believe Fetty was part of the group that reportedly distributed 100 kilos of opioids and fentanyl from the West Coast to the East Coast.Article continues below
Following his arrest, FBI agent Michael Driscoll said, “The fact that we arrested a chart-topping rap artist and a corrections officer as part of the conspiracy illustrates just how vile the drug trade has become.”
This isn’t the first time Fetty’s been locked up behind bars.
In 2019, he got in trouble for hitting a parking attendant at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Police later said the No Days Off rapper “committed a battery” on three attendants.
Fetty was arrested and charged with DUI in 2017 after being caught drag racing on a highway in NYC. He seemed to show no remorse, smiling in his mug shot.
