Auto Theft Charge Against Late Pop Smoke Dropped Following His Death

The 'Welcome to the Party' rapper was accused of stealing a Rolls Royce roughly a month before he died after being gunned down in a home invasion in Los Angeles.

AceShowbiz - An auto theft charge against late rapper Pop Smoke was dropped in a court filing on Monday, April 20, 2020.

The hitmaker, real name Bashar Jackson, was gunned down inside a Los Angeles mansion in February and was the subject of an outstanding case dating back to last January.

The "Welcome to the Party" star was accused of stealing a $375,000 black Rolls Royce that he used in a video shoot, and transporting it back to Brooklyn, New York, where he shared a home with his parents.

Smoke was on bail when he was shot dead on February 19 at a sprawling Hollywood Hills home, in what police believe was a targeted hit, and following the tragic incident the theft charge has been wiped, reported the New York Post's gossip column Page Six.

Law enforcement authorities are still investigating the murder, which they believe may have been gang-related, with the rapper shot dead over his ties to the Rollin 60's Crips organisation.
