Cam'ron busted on drugs, weapons charges

Cam’ron busted on drugs, weapons charges. New York police arrest the Harlem rapper when they find a gun, marijuana, and a forged Fire Department parking pass in his car

Posted on

There’s a track on Cam’ron’s new album ”Come Home With Me” called ”Welcome to New York City.” It doesn’t offer the following tip, though maybe it should have: When looking for a parking space in Manhattan, don’t use a forged Fire Department parking permit. That’s what city cops allegedly spotted in the window of Cam’ron’s SUV yesterday, leading to the ”Horse & Carriage” rapper’s arrest — on drugs and weapons charges, as well as for criminal possession of a forged instrument.

According to the New York Daily News, police said they spotted the fake placard and pulled the rapper over around 5 p.m. Inside the car, police said they spotted some pot in plain view and a .22-caliber pistol. Police charged Cam’ron (real name: Cameron Giles) for the parking pass, in addition to charging him with criminal possession of marijuana and criminal possession of a weapon.

Cam’ron, whose nickname is Killa, recently apologized for dissing rival Nas’ mother and young daughter on a new recording called ”Killa’s Revenge.” His single ”Oh Boy” was at No. 9 last week on the Billboard chart.
