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.
