Singer Sean Kingston has been arrested in California, hours after a police raid of his Florida mansion, during which his mother was also arrested, reports BBC News.

Kingston was accused in February by a company of not fully paying for a huge TV and sound system.

US media report that he was taken into custody in Fort Irwin, southern California, on fraud and theft charges on a Florida warrant, according to police in the latter state.

In an earlier social media post, Kingston said his lawyers were “handling everything”.

The earlier Florida police raid targeted a residence near Fort Lauderdale at which the singer – whose legal name is Kisean Anderson – was named as living in court documents from February.

US media – including the BBC’s partner CBS News – reported that the woman arrested was Kingston’s mother.

Confirming the raid to the BBC, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office said it served arrest and search warrants at the property.

“As a result of the investigation, an adult female, Janice Turner, 2/16/1963, was taken into custody on numerous fraud and theft charges.

“This investigation is active and ongoing.”

Officers were reportedly seen taking goods away from the house afterwards. It was not immediately clear whether the arrests were linked to the company’s allegations.

Kingston’s own arrest hours later in southern California was without incident, police were quoted as saying by US media.
