Officials Release Photos of Drugs Fetty Wap Was Arrested With
Officials have released photos of the cache of money and drugs that were seized during Fetty Wap and his codefendants' recent arrests.
On Friday afternoon (Nov. 5), the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office released multiple pictures of what they recovered during the bust of Fetty Wap and five other men's alleged drug ring. One photo shows evidence bags filled with different denominations of bills. Another photo depicts what appears to be several tightly wrapped packages of possibly cocaine and heroin separated out on a table. A third photo includes what may be a machine used to press pills.
These findings are the result of a federal bust of Fetty Wap and five other men in October that allegedly recovered approximately $1.5 million in cash, 16 kilograms of cocaine, two kilograms of heroin, numerous fentanyl pills, two 9mm handguns, a rifle, a .45 caliber pistol, a .40 caliber pistol and ammunition.

As previously reported, the 30-year-old "Trap Queen" rapper, born William Junior Maxwell II, was arrested on federal drug charges at Citi Field in Queens, N.Y. prior to his scheduled performance at the 2021 Rolling Loud New York Festival on Oct. 29. Fetty was the last of six individuals—Anthony Cyntje, a New Jersey correction officer, Anthony Leonardi, his brother Robert Leonardi, Brian Sullivan and Kavaughn Wiggins—to be apprehended in the case. The federal government is accusing them of running a bi-coastal drug ring based out of Suffolk County, N.Y.
The men are accused of obtaining cocaine, heroin and fentanyl from the West Coast and distributing over 100 kilos of the drugs in Long Island, N.Y. and New Jersey from June of 2019 to June of 2020. According to the indictment, Fetty Wap was a "kilogram-level redistributor for the trafficking organization."
