An underground artist from Brooklyn New York lead the NYPD to discover the largest multi-state trafficking ring, all because of him bragging about selling guns on Instagram.
The aspiring rapper Matthew Best, aka Neno Best, claimed to have been selling weapons pictured on Instagram out of his Ocean Hill recording studio. The photos and videos were later removed but not before the New York Police Department narcotics officials tipped off undercover detectives. The tip led to the largest gun bust in New York history and seized a total of 254 firearms and resulted in 19 indictments.
A colleague of Best, Omole Adedji, was also caught selling firearms and connected to two other gun runners Walter Walker of Sanford, North Carolina, and Earl Campbell of Rock Hill, South Carolina. The four gentleman are apart of the 19 indited in the ongoing case being handled by the NY Police, the Manhattan district attorney and the office of the special narcotics prosecutor.
