Houston rapper Ladesion Riley, age 30, who goes by the stage name “213 Jugg God,” was one of four people arrested and charged in robbing an ATM technician at a Bank of America in Nashville as he was working on an ATM machine on Monday, according to the Nashville Metropolitan Police Department (NMPD).
The other three suspects are also from Houston, Darius Dugas, 27, Sashondre Dugas, 32, and Christopher Alton, 27.
According to NMPD, two people from the group approached the technician from behind around 10:40 a.m. and “told him to not do anything stupid and hand over the money.” They took the cash and fled in vehicles.
Ironically, last year Riley had made a rap song titled, “Make it Home,” where he rapped about bank jugging and hitting ATM’s out of state. “Jugging” is slang for following unsuspecting victims to rob them.
Houston Police Officers Union (HPOU) tweeted out on Twitter earlier this week:
IRONY: When you make a rap song called “Make It Home”, about bank jugging and hitting atm’s out of state, and then don’t make it home… 😂😂😂😂
Ladesion “Jugg god” Riley jinxed the whole gang. Great job, again,
. We’re going to miss these four so much.
HPOU President Doug Griffith released the following statement, “They want to glorify the fact that they’re criminals. That saddens me because we have all of these kids watching this, and they’re glorifying it, and these kids look up to them. It’s dumb. These guys are dumb. They deserve to be tossed into jail just for being dumb.”
According to court records, Riley was out on felony bond from Harris County 182nd District Court, Danilo (Danny) Lacayo-D, for a pending Evading Arrest in a Motor Vehicle charge. His rap sheet [no pun intended] shows he has been arrested and charged on multiple occasions dating back to 2013.
