Local Rapper Arrested on Charges of Credit Card Fraud
A local rapper has 99 problems and credit card fraud is one. The Manhattan Beach-based rhyme-slinger who goes by the name Guerilla Black was arrested today on suspicion of "wide-ranging fraud," according to City News Service.
Black, whose real name is Charles Tony Williamson, was taken into custody alongside five other individuals: 41-year-old Dwanna LaShaun Franklin of Torrance, 50-year-old Diana Lynn Waller of Hawthorne, 34-year-old Rhazon Zaki Smith of Hawthorne, 20-year-old Reiona Marie Cage of Inglewood, and 23-year-old Myeisha Renee Leavell of Los Angeles.
Authorities estimate that Williamson and his cohorts were making about $20,000 a month from the operation. The group defrauded banks and credit card companies in the U.S. and internationally.
