South Carolina Rapper Arrested for Charges Related to Shooting During Sale of Marijuana in China Creek
Yesterday, LeMarcus Raekwon Martin, age 21, a suspect in a marijuana robbery that resulted in one local man being shot, was arrested at an airport in South Carolina. He was booked on charges of robbery and conspiracy to commit a crime.
According to Rosylin Weston, Vice President of Communications at Greenville-Spartanburg Airport, Martin was attempting to fly out of their airport yesterday when he was arrested. “He was attempting to go through screening,” she explained. “Everybody is run through a Homeland Security database and his name showed that there was a warrant for his arrest.” He didn’t give us any problems.
Weston said that Martin was arrested without incident.
After investigating, questioning witnesses, and following up on multiple leads the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office had put out a warrant recently for Martin’s arrest. The incident began on August 6th when a local man and a friend were attempting to sell multiple pounds of marijuana to three men from out of the area. Eventually, the three suspects attempted to drive off with the pounds and the victim attempted to stop them by reaching into the vehicle. One of the suspects inside the vehicle shot the victim. At this point, the Sheriff’s Department hasn’t clarified whether Martin is believed to be the shooter or one of the other suspects.
The victim received serious injury and had to be medevacked to an out of the area hospital.
Currently, Martin is being held for extradition. Once he is brought to Humboldt, if the charges remain the same, he will be held on $500,000 bail.
