Ralo Granted $250,000 Bond on Federal Drug Case

Atlanta rapper Ralo has been given a second chance to come home.

According to reports, on Monday, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division granted him a $250,000 bond. 

This is following his 2018 arrest on four federal counts of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute and possession with intent to distribute over 100 kilograms of marijuana. 

Real name, Terrell Davis, “Ralo” was arrested on April 15, 2018, at DeKalb—Peachtree Airport. He was returning to his hometown on a private plane with 444 pounds of marijuana on it. 

The total haul amounted to $1 million.

However, Ralo will be placed on supervised release and must adhere to a number of conditions. These include residing at a “designated rental property”. 

He is “restricted to twenty-four-hour-a-day lockdown at the residence. The only exceptions: medical necessities, court appearances, or other activities specially approved by the Court.”

The 25-year-old rapper must also “submit to location monitoring as directed by Pretrial Services and comply with all of the program requirements and instructions provided.”

Additionally, Ralo is prohibited from communicating with any third parties, directly or indirectly, via “any cellular device, telephone number, email account, teleconferencing or videoconferencing account, or social-media platform that has not been disclosed in advance and approved by Pretrial Services.”

The Return

Ralo is expected to appear in court on Friday (July 10) to sign his release paperwork. Once the provisions of Ralo’s release and bond are met, he will return home.

Days after his arrest in April of 2018, police, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Department of Homeland Security and FBI agents raided an Atlanta apartment complex owned by Ralo, which was called “Lil Pakistan.” The drug raid was connected to Ralo’s arrest.

Nearly a month later, Ralo entered a not guilty plea for his four federal counts of possession with intent to distribute marijuana. 

He remained behind bars and was denied bond after being accused of orchestrating a cross-country multimillion-dollar drug dealing ring. 

Some of his jewelry, including an assortment of diamond necklaces, rings, Rolex watches and pendants, was later confiscated, then seized by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Petitions were also launched calling for his release.
