Have we learned nothing from Chief Keef? Gawker, via the New York Post, reports on what NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg is calling the largest gun bust in the city's history, and it came about thanks to some pictures that a foolish amateur rapper posted on his Instagram.
Matthew Best, also known as Neno Best, posted the above photos and others to his Instagram over the last year, leading NYPD investigators on his trail. What followed was a protracted undercover operation that resulted in the arrest of 19 people (including Best) and the seizure of about 254 firearms, at least 36 of which were found to be stolen. This was part of a gun smuggling ring that had ties from South Carolina all the way up the East Coast to New York.
Glad to see the police can still do things that are worthwhile. As for you aspiring thugs out there, if you're gonna own guns, legally or otherwise, you should probably keep it to yourself.
