Rapper Wanted for Hempstead Murder Nabbed in Calif.
A wannabe rapper known as “Duffle Bag Agg” wanted for murdering a 30-year-old man outside the victim’s Hempstead home last year has reportedly been apprehended following a standoff with police in California.
Nassau County police have said Mcleod, who also goes by “Agg,” gunned down Rameel Blanco on Lawson Street on the evening of Wednesday, Aug. 1, 2012.
He had been seen in New York City and Atlanta before investigators tracked him down on the West Coast, authorities have said.
A Nassau County police spokeswoman had no information about the reported arrest.
Another unidentified suspect was previously arrested for Blanco’s murder, according to a Nassau County Crime Stoppers flyer seeking tips on McLeod’s whereabouts.
