Police from NYPD’s 1st Precinct received a call that a handgun was found in The Dominick Hotel by one of the employees in an occupied room. Officers confirmed that Polo, whose real name is Taurus Bartlett, was the occupant in the room, and the firearm retrieved was registered in his name.

Manhattan District Attorney’s Office executed a search warrant for the hotel room and found a loaded Glock 23 firearm inside the bedroom side of the hotel room.


NYPD arrested Polo and charged him with Criminal Possession of a Weapon in both the 2nd and 3rd degree.

It was reported that Polo was carrying more than $23K on his person at the time of his arrest.

Things have been rough this past year for Polo, with Polo’s catching a separate gun charge and his brother Trench Baby being arrested for murder in California in November of last year.
