Rapper YG turned himself in to Las Vegas police custody on Thursday in connection with a May robbery at a Strip resort, police said.

Keenon Jackson, the 28-year-old rapper better known by his stage name YG, faces one felony count of robbery after allegedly taking a chain from a man’s neck early May 27 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, a police document obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal shows.

Jackson turned himself in Thursday at the Regional Justice Center during his initial court appearance, Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Jay Rivera said. Jackson was booked into the Clark County Detention Center following his court appearance Thursday morning but was released on $20,000 bail under the condition that he stays out of trouble, court records show.

In security footage reviewed by Las Vegas police, Jackson can be seen walking away from the man “with a a shiny object” :rolleyes:in his hand, Rivera said.
