On Thursday (Oct. 13) afternoon, rapper Tsu Surf was arrested by U.S. Marshals Service New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force On RICO Charges, in connection to a case by the DEA.
According to FOX5NY, Tsu Surf, born Rahjon M. Cox, appeared in federal court on Friday (Oct. 15) in front of a judge virtually where we learned he is being indicted on federal racketeering charges. During the proceedings, it was revealed that Surf has been indicted on one count of racketeering conspiracy, which carries a max penalty of 20 years, and one count of possession of firearms & ammunition by a convicted felon, which carries a max penalty of 10 years.
Surf replied to the judge with the understanding of the charges and has hired a lawyer. However, his attorney could not be present until Monday. The judge replied that due to his higher income, he did not qualify for free counsel. However, he provided one, nonetheless.
Surf is one of 10 people listed on the indictment. “Prosecutors say he is apart of the Rolling 60s Crip Gang and that gang is accused of murder, robbery, among other crimes,” said the FOX5NY reporter, Chris Welch.
Tsu Surf will remain behind bars as a bail hearing has not yet been scheduled.
