Mally Mall has been arrested after police conducted a raid on his San Fernando Valley home, TMZ reports. The producer, who’s worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry, was served a search warrant earlier today at his L.A. home by Los Angeles Police Department and agents from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Capt. Patrick Foy of the California DFW said that Mally Mall’s cotton-top tamarin monkey was seized during the raid. He said that an investigation began about eight to nine months ago after officials received a tip about Mally Mall’s photos with his monkey. If you’ve followed Mally Mall on Instagram, he hasn’t shied away from showing off his exotic pets. Officers reportedly received a clip that Mally posted on Instagram in January 2018 while he kicked it with Swae Lee.
The Health Department previously launched an investigation when the producer brought his pet monkey to the strip club as well as when he gifted Justin Bieber a pet monkey and an ocelot.
The raid was part of a double investigation on allegations that Mally Mall was apart of human trafficking and exotic animal trafficking. The human trafficking claims stem from allegations that he was involved in an escort service in Nevada. His Las Vegas home was previously raided in 2014 over human trafficking claims.
