TMZ has reported that Rapper Bobby Shmurda was arrested Tuesday night during a sting involving multiple shootings and drug trafficking.

The sealed indictment was issued, however specific charges have not been revealed, only that the sting is part of a long-term investigation conducted by the NYPD and a special narcotics prosecutor.

Law enforcement say that Shmurda was under surveillance by police and was arrested while he sat in a car outside a NYC recording studio.

JammedUp co-Founder Ira Judelson is working on a bail package for the rapper, however it is unclear how much bail will be set for, “right now it depends on which judge is going to hear the case, there is a possibility a judge could remand him because he has an open case pending, but hopefully that won’t be the case and reasonable bail amount will be set.”

He is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday.

Shumurda was arrested in October for smoking a joint with two friends while double parked on a Brooklyn street … and in June for possession of a weapon.
