Pooh Shiesty will be held without bond in a federal detention center while awaiting trial on robbery and firearms charges, says the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida.
The charges stem from an October 2020 incident. Shiesty and two members of his crew allegedly shot and robbed two individuals from whom they were buying marijuana and sneakers and fled the scene. They reportedly used semi-automatic weapons.
The Miami Herald reported that federal authorities found a Louis Vuitton bag that contained more than $40,000 in cash at the scene.
Both victims survived the shootings.
IS THIS POOH SHIESTY?
Shiesty was recently indicted on the federal charges of conspiring to possess firearms in furtherance of a crime of violence, conspiring to commit a Hobbs Act robbery, committing a Hobbs Act robbery, and discharging a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
Last month, he was arrested on an aggravated battery charge following an incident outside a Miami strip club in which a security guard was shot.
