FORT LAUDERDALE – Southern California authorities arrested singer Sean Kingston, whose real name is Kisean Anderson, on Thursday on multiple counts of fraud and theft on a warrant out of Florida. His arrest came after a raid on his South Florida home on the day that also saw the arrest of his mother.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office reports that Kingston was arrested in Fort Irwin, California, and will be booked into the San Bernardino jail, which is about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.

Earlier Thursday, Kingston's mother was arrested on fraud charges at the artist's Southwest Ranches home, a Broward County community located 22 miles northwest of Miami.

CBS News Miami's Chopper 4 spotted several officers at the home, as well as the Broward Sheriff's Office Mobile Command Center, a vehicle used to coordinate police operations.

According to court documents dated February 2024, the Jamaican-American music artist lives at this property. A search of county records found the home is owned by a limited liability company.

Following an investigation that began in Dania Beach, officers from BSO's Dania Beach District, along with members of BSO's Strategic Investigations Unit and Davie Police SWAT, executed arrest and search warrants at home.

As a result, Kingston's mother, Janice Turner, 61, was arrested on multiple counts of fraud and theft. The investigation is active and ongoing.

Kingston, who was renting the mansion, is accused of not making payments at VER VER Entertainment on a $150,000 entertainment system that included a 232-inch TV. According to the complaint, Kingston persuaded the company to accept a lower down payment and credit for the purchase by saying he would produce promotional videos for the company featuring Justin Bieber.

CBS News Miami has reached out to Kingston and his attorneys for further comment. They have not responded at the time of publication of this article.
