Mariah Carey and other celebs targeted in break-in by Georgia gang who rapped about crimes
Atlanta, Georgia - Multiple members of an infamous Georgia gang were arrested after a string of break-ins targeting the homes of several celebrities.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fulton County district attorney Fani Willis announced the arrest of 26 alleged members of the Drug Rich gang, on charges including home invasion, kidnapping, armed robbery, and many others.
They are accused of recently invading the homes of several celebrities in the area – among them singer Mariah Carey, the Atlanta Falcon's Calvin Ripley, and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Marlo Hampton.
Believe it or not, the criminal masterminds actually gave themselves away by including references to their crimes in rap songs they produced, while also openly bragging about their robberies on social media. This will all be used against them in court.
Willis believes that the gang targeted "people who show their wealth on social media."
"So I do have a message for the public," Willis explained during a recent press conference, "where it is kind of fun to put your things on social media and show off, unfortunately these gangs are becoming more savvy, more sophisticated in the way that they target you."
"I have some legal advice: don’t confess to crimes on rap lyrics if you do not want them used," Willis added. "Or at least get out of my county."
