MTO News confirmed that Philly Goon AR-AB has been indicted by the feds - and charged with being the leader of a DRUG GANG. He was arrested last night, along with 8 associates.
The feds unsealed an indictment of AR-AB - whose real name is Abdul West - and his 8 associates. According to the Feds, AR-AB is the leader of a Philly drug cartel. He's facing 200 years if convicted on all charges.
