South Florida Crime

MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Miami’s second-biggest name in rap turned himself in to Miami-Dade Police late Wednesday morning.

Richard Morales, known as “Gunplay” on the rap scene, was wanted in connection with an armed robbery that took place a few months ago.

Video of the robbery, which took place  at a tax preparation office in northwest Miami-Dade, shows Morales holding the gun.

A co-defendant, 36-year-old Randy Jones, was already arrested in the case.

Morales, a South Florida native, is no stranger to making headlines for the wrong reasons.

He spoke to TMZ about a scuffle at the BET Awards in Atlanta. While engaged in a fight with 50 Cent’s entourage, Morales was pepper-sprayed by police.

Morales can expect to stay in jail: bond is not offered in armed robbery cases.
