What’s the easiest way to get caught for committing criminal acts? Answer: boasting about it on social media platforms.
Aspiring rap artist Neno Best did just that both on his Instagram and in several songs. Best played an important role in the largest gun bust in New York City history. Estimating at about over 250 firearms and 19 indictments, the Brooklyn rapper shared a piece of his illegal lifestyle with friends and fans.
His Instagram pictures include photos and videos with large amounts of money and guns. Best was reportedly selling firearms out of his Ocean Hill recording studio. Best gradually deleted his posts but not before narcotics investigators and undercover officers from the New York Police Department caught on. Upon the investigation, officials discovered a multi-state gun trafficking ring.
