July 16, 2015

According to a release sent to The FADER by the Sandy Springs Police Department, Young Thug will be facing additional charges in relation to his arrest on Wednesday, which was for allegedly making threats against a mall cop in early July.

Sandy Springs detectives obtained a search warrant for his home and Young Thug is now facing "drugs and weapons charges." TMZ reports that includes a charge for felony cocaine possession, one for felony marijuana possession, and three counts of felony gun possession.


The release also says that Young Thug is being housed at the Dekalb County Jail. The jail's website previously said that he posted $10,000 bail and was released yesterday, but that page has now been taken down. A representative for the Sandy Springs Police Department has not yet returned a call about that.

Here's a screengrab of the site:
