The owner, however, filed a missing report the next day to the Los Angeles Police Department when the rapper failed to hand the car back. Strangely, he tracked his car to Arizona before he could no longer access its location.
From the further report, the Rolls-Royce was found in front of the rapper’s home in December last year in Brooklyn before it was transported by truck to New York from California. When the car was finally recovered by authorities, it was found in front of the house where Jackson’s mother resides in Brooklyn, with tinted windows and a new Alabama license plate.
Fortunately, the stolen Rolls-Royce has since been returned to the rightful owner. The rapper, on the other hand, is now facing a federal charge of attempting to transport a stolen car across states. He was later released on bail in the sum of $250,000, set to reappear in court on the 3rd of February this year.
