Man Who Raps About Robbing ATMs Arrested For Robbing ATMs
A Houston-based YouTube rapper who has published music about robbing ATMs out of state was arrested this week for doing exactly that.
According to the Nashville Police Department, 27-year-old Darius Dugas, 32-year-old Sashondre Dugas, 30-year-old Ladesion Riley, and 27-year-old Christopher Alton were arrested shortly after checking out of a hotel in Dickson, TN.
Riley uses the stage name "213 Jugg god" with which he posted a music video called "Make it Home." The song brings Riley rapping about robbing ATMs out of state. The songs lyrics include having thousands of dollars at home, praying to avoid the chase, and to make it home from the robbery.
"If you’re going to rap about it, then turn around and be about it and get caught, that’s on you," said Douglas Griffith, President of the Houston Police Officers’ Union. "You shouldn’t do stupid crap, and you definitely shouldn’t violate the law and talk about it."
Authorities say the group of four approached an ATM technician from behind and told him not to do anything stupid and hand over the money. Later that day, Nashville Police, Dickson Police, the Tennessee Highway Patrol, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Violent Crimes Task Force arrested the group.
Two of the suspects are out of jail on felony bonds, being previously arrested multiple times.
"Convicted felons doing their music videos with guns," said Griffith. "How dumb is that? That right there is enough for them to get charged again."
All four of the Texans face federal charges. The FBI is now investigating to determine if they committed similar robberies before this incident.
