CALABASAS — Los Angeles County Sheriffs Dept. has announced the March 7th tipster-arrest of John Robert Hill (21) aka the rapper ‘Boonk Gang’ for narcotics and multiple assault weapons.
Notorious for Instagram posts of committing various crimes and performing stunts, Hill’s numerous run-ins with authorities continues undaunted. He’s been arrested twice at Dunkin Donuts in Miami – once for taking an entire tray of glazed donuts last May, followed by burglary and petty theft in July.
Hill posted a video of throwing strawberry milkshakes on himself in a Chik-Fil-A restaurant while removing his clothes to celebrate reaching one million followers on Instagram last July. A YouTube video features Boonk Gang holding $10,000 in one hand while waving a gun in the other hand with his finger on the gun’s trigger during a January radio interview.
Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Detectives announced last night, “The investigation leading to Suspect Hill’s arrest initiated after detectives received information of a male who was in possession of illegal narcotics and assault weapons.
Through investigative resources, detectives from LASD’s Northwest Region Narcotics crew served a search warrant at the suspect’s residence located in the 3900 block of Ceanothus Place in Calabasas.”
Detectives placed Hill under arrest for possession of assault weapons and possessing prescription medication without a prescription, booked him for felony weapons charges and drugs, and held him in lieu of $35,000 bail.
Hill bonded out, and is scheduled to appear today at Van Nuys Courthouse West.
LASD urged, “The Sheriff’s Department takes great pride in investigating every tip it receives because every tip is a lead.
