Instagram Leads to Largest Gun Bust in NYC History

Aspiring rapper's Instagram

The largest gun bust in New York City history has netted 254 firearms and 19 indictments, and it all reportedly began with a little-known Brooklyn rapper bragging about selling guns on Instagram. Matthew Best — who has released a couple mixtapes under the name Neno Best — posted photos and video of various guns and large amounts of money, stating that he was selling weapons out of his Ocean Hill recording studio, according to the New York Daily News. Most of the posts have since been removed, but not before being spotted by New York Police Department narcotics investigators who then passed the info along to undercover officers. Shortly thereafter, an NYPD investigator found a multi-state gun trafficking ring, officials say.
