Popular rapper Quando Rondo finds himself in deeper legal troubles as the FBI confirms his arrest on federal drug charges in the early hours of Saturday morning, December 9. According to Chatham County Detention Center’s booking records, Quando Rondo is now under federal custody hold.
This recent arrest adds to the rapper’s existing legal woes, which include a previous indictment related to drug and gang-related charges. Back in June, Quando Rondo was among 19 individuals indicted in a comprehensive legal action in Chatham County, Georgia. The charges included 49 counts of drug-related offenses, gang affiliation, and illegal use of cell phones.
The indictment alleged that Quando Rondo not only directed the Rollin’ 60s gang in Georgia but also participated in drug deals dating back to October 2022, violating Georgia’s Controlled Substances Act. The rapper and his co-conspirators were reportedly involved in trafficking substances such as cocaine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, and M30 pills, utilizing jail phones to coordinate their illicit activities.
In addition to drug-related charges, Quando Rondo was accused of violating the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act as a manager of the Rollin’ 60s. The Chatham County District Attorney deemed the rapper’s alleged behavior reprehensible, requesting a ban on his performances in the county and in Savannah until the trial is completed.
Despite being free on a $100,000 bond, Quando Rondo faced another setback with his recent arrest. Previously, in July, the rapper narrowly avoided returning to jail after being involved in a car accident.
Reports indicated that he had overdosed on Benzodiazepines and had to be revived using Narcan. Although a judge allowed him to remain free at that time, the recent arrest has led to his current confinement at the Chatham County Jail with no bond.
