A San Diego rap artist suspected of kidnapping a Southern California woman and holding her in a San Anselmo home has been arrested, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.
Charles LaSean Mitchell, professionally known as “Mitchy Slick,” surrendered at the Marin County Jail on Tuesday afternoon after a judge issued a $1.5 million warrant for his arrest, sheriff’s office officials said today.
Mitchell, 40, was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, human trafficking, terrorist threats, participating in a street gang and brandishing a firearm, officials said. He is suspected of being an active member of the Lincoln Park Bloods gang in San Diego.
Sheriff’s office officials had previously conducted a search warrant at 30 Oak Knoll Drive in San Anselmo, where Mitchell was allegedly staying with the woman in question, but Mitchell was not present and remained at large until Tuesday.
His exact connection to the property remains unclear, officials said. While the raid was witnessed by many residents and caused concern in the neighborhood, officials said there is no threat to the community related to this investigation.
