Atlanta authorities were surprised to find the studio of Making Big Moves Records the perfect setting for a raid as they discovered $162,000 in cash, 11 pounds of marijuana and two handguns. After police officers were seen on surveillance cameras several individuals inside began to flush evidence away. Before they could complete the task, police stormed the studio

"They were in the bathroom and they were trying to flush a lot of the drugs down the toilet, they just had too much and couldn't flush it all down," Officer Richard Light told WSBTV Channel 2 Action News in Atlanta.

Rapper Maurice "Parlae" Gleaton of Dem Franchize Boyz were those charged. Although Parlae was arrested along with several others, they will all face gun and drug charges. A spokesperson for the group said that "[Gleaton] committed no crime and will be exonerated."

"Based on what we know, the facts will show that Parlae will be exonerated on any charges in this matter," Melissa Victor, a spokesperson for the group, told the Associated Press. Police had received several tips from neighborhood watchdogs that drugs were being sold from the studio.

The CEO of Making Big Moves Records, Anthony Blalock, was also arrested in the sting. All eight are expected to stand before a judge Thursday, June 15.
