Dem Franchize Boyz Arrested in Raid

Posted By on June 14, 2006

A member of the Atlanta-based group Dem Franchize Boyz was arrested yesterday (June 13) during a police raid at a local recording studio.

Authorities confiscated more than 11 pounds of marijuana, $150,000 in cash, two handguns and a stack of pornography from the Making Money studio in Atlanta.

Sources told AllHipHop.com that all of the recording equipment was also seized, as well as four cars. The identity of the group member arrested was not immediately available.

“They were in the bathroom and they were trying to flush a lot of the drugs down the toilet,” Atlanta Police Officer Richard Light told Channel 2 Action News. “They just had too much and couldn’t flush it all down.”

Two children, who were at the studio during the raid, were taken into custody and were later released to their mother.

WSBTV reports that eight people were arrested, including Making Big Moves Records CEO Anthony Blalock. The raid occurred after authorities received a tip that drugs were being sold at the studio.

The suspects tried to get rid of the evidence after noticing officers on surveillance cameras, according to police.
