Law enforcement swarmed Sean Kingston’s home in South Florida on Thursday morning amid an ongoing probe relating to fraud and theft charges, Page Six can confirm.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office told us its investigation began earlier Thursday in Dania Beach, Florida, for an undisclosed reason, and ultimately led to the Beautiful Girls singer’s residence.

The public information officer notes they arrived at the Southwest Ranches location with several detectives from the Dania Beach District, their Strategic Investigations Unit and police SWAT team.

Local news outlets reported seeing more than a dozen deputies near a command centre that investigators set up in the driveway of Kingston’s home.

We’re told that police served arrest and search warrants and took the Jamaican singer’s 61-year-old mother, Janice Turner, into custody on “numerous fraud and theft charges.”

“This investigation is active and ongoing,” the public information officer concludes.

It does not appear that Kingston, whose real name is Kisean Paul Anderson, was home at the time of the raid, as he posted via his Instagram Story Wednesday that he had just wrapped a show in Los Angeles and was headed for Las Vegas.

The rapper and singer’s reps did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.

Law enforcement has not confirmed whether one of the arrest warrants was for Kingston, and if they have plans to arrest the entertainer at a later time.

However, Kingston is currently embroiled in a legal battle with Ver Ver Entertainment, which sued him for unpaid payments on the sale and installation of a 232-inch television at Kingston’s Broward County, Florida, home, per court docs filed in February and obtained by Page Six.

An lawyer for the company, Dennis Card, told Local 10 News Thursday, “He basically has a sales pitch that he goes through to defraud people.

“He induces them into giving him really expensive things. We know that our property is inside this house right here, so as soon as the raid takes place, we are going to have a crew of people in there to reassemble it and take it back to its rightful owner.”

The lawyer added via NBC 6 South Florida, “He likes having bling, he likes showing off, he’s a showman.

“My client has a $150,000 television sound system that’s in there, there’s also about $1 million worth of watches that are in there, there’s an $80,000 custom bed that was ordered. This is an organised, systematic fraud.”

Kingston has run into legal issues in the past for seemingly living beyond his means.

In 2016, he was sued for $300,000 for buying jewels that he could not afford.

Past court records also showed that a separate Florida jeweller sued Kingston for allegedly stiffing them on $48,000 worth of goods, and he was ordered in 2015 to pay New York-based Avi Da Jeweler more than $356,000 for bouncing checks for watches.
