Pooh Shiesty has been indicted over the alleged shooting and robbery of two men outside a Bay Harbor Islands hotel.
The 21-year-old was charged, along with Bobby Brown and Jayden Darosa, for robbing two men after the trio allegedly met the two victims in October to buy marijuana and “high-end athletic sneakers.” Pooh Shiesty, whose real name is Lontrell Williams, showed up in a McLaren while Darosa was driving a Mercedes Maybach.
Surveillance footage reportedly showed Williams and Brown shoot the two men. One of the robbery victims was shot in the hip, while the other was shot in the rear. According to a criminal complaint, Williams used a Draco subcompact machine gun and never paid the victims.
Investigators claimed the rapper’s social media posts were key in building their case. A Louis Vuitton bag that fell out of the McLaren contained over $40,000 in cash. In addition to Williams posting photos of himself with cash and rifles, investigators discovered that one of the bills in the bag had the same serial number as the one depicted on Instagram. Williams also posted photos of himself with the same McLaren witnessed in the robbery and Darosa made an Instagram post that showed him posing with the same Draco used by Williams.
Williams was released on bail earlier this month but remained in jail over a shooting incident at the King of Diamonds strip club. The security guard, who was shot at the strip club, recanted his statement and caused Williams to be denied bail while investigators figure out why the alleged victim backtracked.
As for the October robbery, Pooh Shiesty has been charged with discharging a firearm during a violent crime, conspiracy, and robbery under a law regulating commerce. The rapper will be held in federal custody until a hearing on July 6.
