Rapper 40 Glocc arrested in San Bernardino

San Bernardino police have arrested Colton-area rapper 40 Glocc on suspicion of various weapons violations after he was carrying a loaded 9-millimeter handgun while parked in his sport utility vehicle, officials said.

The rapper, born Lawrence White, was arrested Sunday afternoon with a semiautomatic handgun in the passenger area of his sport utility vehicle, said Lt. Jarrod Burguon of the San Bernardino Police Department.

White, identified by police as a member of the Colton City Crips, was arrested less than a block from the Arbor Terrace Apartments, an area he and other gang members are banned from congregating near under a 2008 court injunction, Burguon said.

Burguon said police patrolling the Village Green Apartments in the 2100 block of West Chestnut Street in San Bernardino about 4:30 p.m. Sunday approached White and several other people loitering near a carport area.

White, also known as Big Bad 40, was sitting in a black Range Rover with other gang members when police found the gun, Burguon said.

White, who is signed to Infamous Records and G-Unit Records, was arrested and booked at the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino on suspicion of various weapons violations, Burguon said. Several others were arrested at the scene for violating parole, he said.

A judge ruled in November 2008 that White was a member of the Colton City Crips and that he would be included in an injunction prohibiting 60 gang members from congregating near the Arbor Terrace Apartments in Colton.

White had denied being a member of the gang and fought the injunction.

Why is this news? Does ANYONE who reads the paper know who this is?

You would think he would be at least carrying a .40
Maybe he should call him self Gloc9 or now he can probably call himself doing 9...haha


Not living up to his name/moniker...why, a 9mm? lol

rap and rappers are an evil so huge, that it may be the only art' form that is totally owned by the devil.

He is useless trash that serves no purpose existing in society. He should be thrown out like trash.

Why is it that the only approved comments are those that don't point out the obvious stupidity of the article.

I'm sorry Nate - maybe you're a big fan of the Colton Rap scene, but for the rest of us we've never heard of this guy, nor really care.

Shocking that a rapper whose stage name is based on a gun would be arrested on weapons charges.


How could such a thing happen to such a gentle, great artist?

Rap sucks.

All this gangsta nonsense is SO 2003.

It is legal to carry a gun in the passenger compartment of your vehicle if it is either unloaded and inside a lockable case, or if you have a CCW or concealed carry permit. I gather this person did not possess a CCW permit? Was his gun loaded at the time it was found in his vehicle? Or was it locked up inside a case and loaded? We need more info here.

It is perfectly legal to carry your handgun inside your vehicle if it is unloaded and inside a locked case. Also, if you have a CCW permit you may carry a loaded gun in your vehicle. I gather this person did not have a CCW? Usually, to obtain a CCW from your local police chief, you need to be a rap star, basketball player, famous actor or best friend with or a relative of the local police chief?

Why don't we lock up gang members instead of issuing injunctions against them congregating. If they have done enough to ban their freedom of assembly then we should be able to deny them their freedom.


I bet half the people reading this paper have a weapon in their car...

I have a question to the law experts.

Totally legit question,

Ok, so we can carry our unloaded handgun's in our vehicles in a locked case.( I know this much as to be true)

What about the magazines, do they have to be empty? Can you have a fully loaded magazine, say in another area of your car, while you have your handgun in a locked case.

I thought Jack LaLane would live forever!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm who the hell is 40 Glocc??????????????????????????????????????????????

In a related story, a member of the rap group Smith & Wessen crew was arrested for drunk driving in Inglewood this morning.


I know huh!!! I thought Jack Lalane would live forever too!!
Rest in peace Jack! =-)
Oh and as for this 40 Glocc????? I like rap, but who the hell is this guy?! And someone please answer ljl regarding the magazine he carries in his car! lol! >;)
