Famous Dex, who was reported earlier this month to have been robbed of a $50,000 watch and thousands in cash at gunpoint, has been arrested in North Hollywood for carrying a concealed firearm.

On Wednesday, TMZ—which first reported the arrest—said Dex was a passenger in a vehicle that was initially pulled over by Los Angeles Police Department officers for not having a rear license plate in the North Hollywood area. During the traffic stop, according to their report, Dex attempted to walk away but was ultimately detained.

A search of the vehicle is said to have shown that one of the passengers was currently on probation, as well as resulted in the discovery of a loaded gun under Dex’s seat. An online records search shows that Dex was arrested at approximately 6:45 p.m. local time on Tuesday and booked at the LAPD Valley Jail in Van Nuys.

Complex has reached out to an LAPD spokesperson for additional comment.

Carrying a concealed weapon in California is a felony, for which Dex was booked and his $35K bail set that he has not posted as of yet.
