Fugitive Wanted For Role In Jimmy Henchman Cocaine Operation Arrested
(AllHipHop News)A man wanted for his role in Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond’s drug dealing operation was apprehended over the weekend.
Authorities had been seeking Jason Williams, who went on the run in May of 2011, after an indictment was unsealed accusing Henchman and his subordinates of using Czar Entertainment as a front for a $10 million drug dealing operation.
Henchman is accused of using Czar, which managed artists like Game, Brandy and Akon, as a cover to send hundreds of kilos of cocaine in cases used for transporting music equipment to various recording studios.
The scheme then used Fedex to send the proceeds to mailbox drops in vacuum sealed bags on the West coast.
Henchman himself went on the run from May of 2011 until he was apprehended in late June of 2011, at The W in New York’s Union Square.
In October of 2011, Henchman’s brother Kesnar Rosemond was sentenced to 12 years in prison for his role in the drug dealing operation.
Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond is currently awaiting trial on drug conspiracy and trafficking charges.
He has pleaded not guilty and faces a life sentence if convicted.
Jason Williams is currently being held without bail on cocaine distribution and drug trafficking charges.
