Man Arrested in Connection to Tekashi69’s Kidnapping, Robbery

If you remember, back in July Tekashi69 was pistol-whipped, kidnapped and robbed of almost $800k in cash and jewelry, before he managed to escape and hitchhike to a hospital. Tekashi reported the incident to the cops; however, he became uncooperative, making it almost impossible to complete the investigation.

Four months later. federal agents have arrested the man they believe to be involved in the incident. Court documents were obtained by TMZ and Anthony Jamel Ellison was arrested on November 6 on a federal warrant, and since then, a jury has indicted him on one count of conspiracy to obstruct commerce by robbery, one count of obstructing commerce by robbery and one count of carrying a firearm to commit a crime.

Anthony pleaded not guilty to all charges and remains in jail until his trial. Sources close to Tekashi has told TMZ, Anthony, who is a known affiliate of a gang, was part of a Tekashi’s management team before his career kicked off.
