Rapper YG was arrested at his Chatsworth area home on a robbery charge early Friday morning, authorities said.

Deputies with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the Compton rapper’s San Fernando Valley home around 4 a.m. to serve a search warrant related to an ongoing criminal investigation, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed.

YG, 29, was taken into custody and is currently being held at the Men’s Central Jail on robbery charges, sheriff’s officials said.

The Sheriff’s office is also investigating the hip-hop artist, born Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, after a vehicle registered in his name was involved in a pursuit that turned into a deadly deputy-involved shooting.

In July, YG’s Hollywood Hills home was raided by sheriff’s deputies. Several people were detained, but no arrests were made at the rapper’s home located off the Sunset Strip.
