The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office busted gang members after they posted a video on YouTube of themselves rapping while brandishing firearms.
The PBSO stumbled onto the video, which shows several gang members showing off their guns and displaying gang signs with their hands.
The video not only led authorities to the gang members but also to guns, drugs, and other illegal items.
After viewing the video, PBSO gang detectives obtained a search warrant for a home where the video was believed to have been shot.
PBSO SWAT then executed the warrant, and eight gang members where detained in and around the house.
During the search, authorities found three handguns as well as illegal narcotics.
According to the PBSO, Cortney Terry, the main gang member rapping in the video, was charged with aggravated battery and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
He pleaded guilty to felon in possession of a firearm and was sentenced to 1 year and 1 day in DOC and was adjudicated guilty.
