Rapper Roddy Ricch Arrested for Gun Possession in New York City – Deadline

Grammy-winning rapper Roddy Ricch was one of three men arrested Saturday night for his scheduled performance at the Governor’s Ball concert at Citi Field in New York City.

Ricch, real name Rodrick Moore, was driving a 2020 Cadillac Escalade with two other men when they were stopped at a checkpoint manned by private security at 6:20 p.m., just hours before the start of the event. The guards saw a 9mm cannon and a magazine containing nine ammunition in the vehicle, police said.

Ricch, 23 years old, lives in Los Angeles. He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, possession of a large-capacity ammunition feed device and possession of an illegal power supply device, police said. They are all serious charges in New York, with sentences of up to 7 years in prison for each count, sentences that can be extended if the person is a criminal.

Carlos Collins, 57, of NJ and Michael Figueroa, 46, of Brooklyn also face gun charges, police said

Ricch won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance in 2020. He was supposed to perform at the event on Saturday night.

The Governor’s Ball is produced by Founders Entertainment, a festival promotion company based in New York City that also produces The Meadows Music & Arts Festival.
