Kodak Black has topped a year-end list but probably not in the way he would have liked.

On Tuesday, NPR affiliate WBFO revealed that Kodak came in at no. 1 on the top 10 list of unique seizures and arrests by the Buffalo Field Office of U.S. Customs and Border Protection in 2019. The list encompasses seizures made by CBP of drugs, jewelry, weapons, and furs.

According to the report, on April 17, 2019, Kodak and his crew—who were in two separate vehicles—were trying to cross back into the U.S. from Canada. CBP officers searched their cars and found four handguns, a loaded magazine cartridge and a personal use amount of marijuana. Kodak and his three friends were arrested for felony possession of a weapon under New York State Penal Law. The day after his arrest, Kodak posted bail and was freed from CBP custody.

CBP officers made a handful of other curious seizures last year, like discovering 16 fur coats in a commercial shipment, and 7.8 pounds of steroids in shipments of bobblehead toys.

LaFonda Sutton-Burke, acting director of Buffalo Field Operations, told WBFO News that CBP released the list to the public because “CBP Officers within Buffalo Field Operations work tirelessly to protect our nation’s security. This list is just a small snapshot of the outstanding work they do day in and day out.”

Kodak is currently incarcerated for a 46-month prison sentence on federal firearms charges in connection with his May 11 arrest in Miami.
