Gangsta Boo Charged In Armed Robbery

Lola Chantrelle Mitchell, who goes by the stage name Gangsta Boo, was one of two suspects arrested in connection with the robbery of a Dollar General store on July 23rd of this year.

Boo turned herself into the police on Tuesday (December 8) after learning of the warrant against her for conspiracy to commit armed robbery in Olive Branch, Mississippi. Her actual role in the crime was not released by police, but her alleged accomplice Marcus Curtis, 30, is being charged as the gunman.

According to the Desoto Times, Curtis is accused of approaching a female Dollar General employee as she exited the store shortly before 9 pm July 23rd, and with a black revolver in hand ordered her to return inside and empty a cash register. He then also forced a male employee to place money from the store's safe into a bag before demanding employees to lie on the floor as he fled on foot. No shots were fired.

Following her arrest, Gangsta Boo was released on $100,000 bond pending a court appearance on January 5, 2010. Curtis was extradited from Memphis and booked into DeSoto County Jail on Wednesday (December 9) and is being held on $100,000 bond.

The 28-year-old is known for being an original member of Memphis rap group Three 6 Mafia and she has released three solo albums to date.
