Kodak Black is calling for the police to return the property seized during his arrest last month. Legal documents obtained by TMZ detail a request to force the Florida police officers to return a Dodge Durango and $74,960 in cash. Police confiscated the property in question during a drug arrest on July 15.
Bradford Cohen, Kodak’s longtime attorney, claims he can prove both the car and the cash were not involved in any illegal activity.
First, he claims the Dodge Durango is registered to Sniper Gang, Kodak’s record label. Since Kodak provided a prescription for the found pills, Cohen argues there is no legal basis to hold the vehicle.
Cohen also states that the roughly $75,000 in cash on Kodak’s person simply comes with the territory. He claims Kodak carries it to pay for large expenses while on tour. In addition, gigs often pay in cash.
Kodak Black July Arrest
Police pulled Kodak Black over on July 15th, saying the car reeked of weed. Searching the vehicle, they found $74,960 in cash and 31 oxycodone pills. Although Kodak provided a prescription for the oxycodone, his possessions are still being held as evidence.
Kodak taunted the officers after the arrest, tweeting and deleting the following.
“‘Hey I’m Officer Pinky Dick The One On The News For Arresting The Rapper Kid With The Big Dick And Alotta Cash. Yea My Daughter Talks About It So Much I Had To Pull Em Over So I Can Feel It Myself .. No Lie Bro Felt Like He Had A Shotgun In His Front Pocket.’”
The July arrest could result in Kodak back behind bars. Despite his 2021 presidential pardon, Kodak is on supervised release until 2024. According to prosecutors, he could be sentenced to “more jail time, an extended supervised release period, or both.”
