Sean Kingston booked into jail as he’s charged in $1 million fraud case

Sean Kingston was initially arrested of May 23

Sean Kingston is now behind bars after being charged in $1 million fraud case.

The 'Beautiful Girls' hitmaker's home was raided late last month after Kingston - real name Kisean Anderson - was accused of not fully paying off his debts, as well as a handful of other related crimes.

The debts are thought to be in regards to a TV and sound system at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Kingston and his mother, Janice Turner, have since been charged with committing more than a million dollars’ worth of fraud following a suit being filed back in February.

Turner was arrested on May 23 and was taken into custody at the time.

A warrant for Kingston's arrest had been issued earlier that day, with the singer going on to be arrested later that day.

He'd been out of the state for a performance in California when his home was raided, PEOPLE reported.

"This evening, police in Fort Irwin, Calif., arrested Kisean Anderson, aka Sean Kingston without incident on a Broward Sheriff's Office arrest warrant for numerous fraud and theft charges," the Broward Sheriff's Office confirmed at the time of the singer's arrest.

Now the 'Eenie Meenie' singer had been booked into Florida's Broward County jail, with a judge setting his bail at $100,000.

According to jail records, 34-year-old Kingston was booked in to the jail on Sunday (June 2).

Meanwhile, his mother was being held on Friday (May 31) at the same jail on a $160,000 bond.

The booking comes after it was initially thought that Kingston would be booked into a California jail, but he agreed to be extradited to Florida.

Specific details of Kingston’s and Turner’s alleged crimes were not included in the warrants, but the documents claim that from October to March, they stole almost $500,000 in jewelry, more than $200,000 from Bank of America, $160,000 dollars from the Escalade dealer, more than 100,000 dollars from First Republic Bank, $86,000 from the maker of customised beds, and other non-specific amounts.

Following both Kingston and his mother's arrest, the pair have been charged with conducting an organized scheme to defraud, grand theft, identity theft and related crimes, as per arrest warrants released by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

Speaking to Associated Press, Kingston and his mother's lawyer Robert Rosenblatt said that they looked forward to addressing the charges in a Florida court and 'are confident of a successful resolution'.

At the time of Kingston's arrest, he had already serving a two-year probation sentence for trafficking stolen property.
