Sean Kingston has been extradited to Florida amid his fraud and theft case.

The 34-year-old artist was booked into the Broward County jail in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday night, June 2, over a week after he was arrested in Southern California. According to WSVN, Kingston, born Kisean Paul Anderson, faced an arrest warrant after a SWAT team raided his rented home in Southwest Ranches last month, which prompted police to pick him up from Fort Irwin in California’s Mojave Desert. His mother, Janice Turner, was also arrested on the same day. The "Fire Burning" singer had his bail set at $100,000.

Sean Kingston and his mom are both facing 10 counts including charges of conducting an organized scheme to defraud, grand theft, identity theft and related crimes. Kingston also faces a charge of probation violation since he was serving a two-year sentence for trafficking stolen items. Authorities claim Anderson and Turner of stole $480,000 in jewelry, $159,701.49 from a Cadillac Escalade dealer and $86,568.33 from a company that makes customized beds. They also allegedly defrauded First Republic Bank for $100,000 and Bank of America for over $200,000.

The charges stem from a lawsuit attorney Dennis Card filed for his client Ver Ver Entertainment. Card's lawsuit details a pattern of fraud and theft from October to March 2024 including his client's 232-inch television and home entertainment system. The company claimed Kingston contacted them through Instagram and told the company he would make promotional videos with Justin Bieber in order to get a discount on the massive LED TV. He put down a $30,000 deposit but he didn't make the promo videos nor did he pay the rest of $150,000 that was owed.
