Who is Rapper Casanova and why is he wanted by the FBI?

RAPPER Casanova is being sought by authorities in connection with the indictment of 18 people.

Seventeen of the 18 are in custody - but Casanova is not.

Who is Casanova?

Casanova, whose legal name is Caswell Senior, is a rapper currently signed to Roc Nation.

The 34-year-old musician was born and raised in Brooklyn.

Why is he being sought by authorities?

Casanova has been indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit racketeering; conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and firearms possession.

Authorities said 17 of the 18 named in the indictment were in custody.

Those named in the indictment are allegedly part of the Untouchable Gorilla Stone Nation gang, operating in New York City and part of New York state.

The FBI’s New York office issued a tweet saying Casanova was still being sought.

“Members of Gorilla Stone committed terrible acts of violence, trafficked in narcotics, and even engaged in brazen fraud by exploiting benefits programs meant to provide assistance in response to the Covid-19 pandemic," Acting US Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a statement.
