Trick Daddy Charged with Possessing One Gram of Coke

Trick Daddy’s 2014 mug shot.

Florida police found a gram of cocaine, a 9mm handgun and ammo during a search of Trick Daddy's home in Miramar on Apr. 3. The rapper, who's a convicted felon, was arrested and taken to jail.

Broward County's Drug Task Force was "conducting surveillance" where Trick Daddy (nee Maurice Young) lives on Southwest 19th St. Miramar is 20 miles north of Miami. The search took place at 2 pm against his wishes.

Young was charged separately with possession of a firearm, ammunition and cocaine, and subsequently released on a $6,100 bond.

His rap sheet dates back to a cocaine and firearm bust in 1991, which he spent 30 months in jail for.

Trick Daddy hasn't released an album since 2009's Finally Famous: Born a Thug, Still a Thug.
