So Much For Leaving His Criminal Past Behind: “Love & Hip Hop” Star Mendeecees Harris Facing Drug Trafficking Charges

It’s no secret that Love & Hip Hop star Mendeecees Harris has a delinquent past. He made it clear during the first episode of the show that although he has a past history of being in the streets (a.k.a criminal activities), he’s gotten himself together and snagged a legal gig in the music industry. Unfortunately for the “Love & Hip Hop” star, authorities say otherwise.

Court documents reveal that Mendeecees and two other men, Ronald Walker and Tyrus Harris, are accused of trafficking $2.5 million worth of drugs throughout the Rochester area of New York between 2005 and August of last year, reports the Democrat and Chronicle. It has not yet been revealed whether or not Mendeecees and Tyrus are related. Thus far, authorities have seized $1.5 million from safety deposit boxes and $407,000 worth of jewelry in connection with the case. Authorities are also “pushing for the forfeiture of properties in Georgia and Baltimore” tied to the accused men. Mendeecees is reported to have turned himself in to the Rochester Police on January 24th and will be arraigned once his current trial in New Jersey is over. If you recall, the reality star is also facing sexual assault charges in Lodi, New Jersey, which were filed against him for inappropriately touching a 15-year-old girl. The trial for that case began January 29th.

Mendeecee’s is facing some pretty serious charges, which could mean some heavy jail time. Considering the turmoil that his life is currently in, one can only imagine how heavily this is weighing on Yandy, considering that she recently gave birth to his youngest son. However, many believe that Yandy must have had some clue about his past, considering the fact that they’ve been together off and on for the past six years.

What do you think of the latest allegations again Mendeecees?

    What y’all should be askin’ yourselves is why would this “COLLEGE EDUCATED” woman mate with this “AIN’T SHYT” n*ggga? – You’d think with all of her networking and business saavy, she’d get involved with men who’s EQUALLY yoked INTELLECTUALLY and PROFESSIONALLY? – She, like Phaedra Park, has that TRAGIC character flaw that plagues a lot of these SISTAS today: TRIFLIN’ N*GGGA H0E-ISM aka SWEET TOOTH FOR THUG DIKK!

    • MLS2698

      Typical street dude makes money, then breaks/pays his way into the music industry. I wouldn’t do business with a woman who has a man with charges hanging over his head; take your business elsewhere, Yandy.
