Is Mandeecees Harris a Drug Dealer?

Is Mandeecees Harris a drug dealer? Mandeecees Harris was introduced to viewers on this season of Love and Hip Hop as the love interest of Yandy Smith, who made her return to the show after being locked into some heavy drama with former cast mate Chrissy Lampkin from the previous season as Jim Jones’ now ex-manager. Seeming to be enjoying fatherhood and his new reality TV show stint with Yandy, Mandeecees mostly maintains a pretty chill persona during his appearances on the show, a persona in which he puts on the back burner in the upcoming episode of the show after a workout session of Yandy’s was taken a little too far. While some of the cast members of Love and Hip Hop are claiming it to be one scripted source of entertainment, some things that have gone down off the set of the show have been as real as they can get as a few cast members have had some run-ins with the law, Mandeecees supposedly being one of them. Not too long ago, Mandeecees Harris was accused of molesting a 15-year old girl and the news of the alleged incident was rumored to have gotten both Yandy Smith and Mandeecees Harris kicked off the show by Mona Scott-Young. While Yandy and Mandeecees may have not gotten the boot from the show, it seems that the legal troubles keep piling up for Mandeecees as he has now been accused of trafficking drugs in New York.
Here’s the report from AllHipHop.com:
Court documents revealed that Harris and two other men, Ronald Walker and Tyrus Harris, were charged with trafficking $2.5 million worth of heroin and cocaine from 2005 and 2012.
Authorities seized over $1.5 million dollars from safety deposit boxes associated with the defendants. $407,000 worth of jewelry (including Hublot, Rolex, and Cartier watches) and a 2012 Range Rover were also confiscated. Properties in Atlanta and Baltimore may be forfeited as well.
On January 24, Harris turned himself in for arrest and is expected to be arraigned in the drug case after completing his trial for sexual abuse of a 15-year-old in Jersey. Records show that Tyrus Harris and Walker pleaded not guilty at their arraignment on the drug trafficking charges.
