Love & Hip-Hop: New York is clearly racking up the drama for next season!
Yandy Smith brought along her baby father Mandeecees Harris for the reality television ride this season, but he’s already been the face of headlines off-screen after facing charges of sexually abusing a minor.
Now, the Harlem-native has to head back to court, because he’s facing new charges for trafficking drugs!
According to DemocratAndChronicle.com, court papers show that Mandeecees and two other men are being accused of trafficking heroin and cocaine in the Rochester, NY area.
The records show that he was originally indicted on the charges back in the fall, and that the men trafficked $2.5 million worth of drugs between 2005 to 2012.
The site reports:
While court records provide few details about the criminal case against Harris and his co-defendants, Ronald Walker and Tyrus Harris, the indictment shows that authorities have already seized more than $1.5 million from safety deposit boxes connected with the case.
Also seized was nearly $407,000 worth of jewelry and watches, including a $60,000 Rolex and another $35,000 Rolex.
Authorities are also pushing for the forfeiture of properties in Georgia and Baltimore.
Harris surrendered for arrest on the Rochester-area indictment on Jan. 24. He is expected to be arraigned in Rochester after a current trial in New Jersey. Harris’ co-defendants have pleaded not guilty at arraignments in Rochester, records show.
Mandeecees just can’t catch a break when it comes to the law! Maybe starring on Love & Hip-Hop can help him get a fresh start?
