Artiste Sean Kingston had his rented South Florida mansion raided by a SWAT team on Thursday and his mother arrested on fraud and theft charges.

A Florida attorney indicated that the charges emanate partly from the installation of a massive TV at the home.

Police arrested Janice Turner, 61, at the 14,000-square foot (1,300-square meter) home in Southwest Ranches, a well-off Fort Lauderdale suburb that is home to many celebrities and professional athletes, including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The sheriff’s office said the investigation is ongoing and declined to release specific details about the charges against Turner or whether her 34-year-old artiste son is also a target.

Local media reported that Kingston is out of town and was not present during the raid.

Broward County prosecutors referred all questions to the sheriff’s office.

Federal court records show that in 2006 Turner pleaded guilty to bank fraud for stealing over $160,000 and served 16 months.

“People love negative energy!” Kingston posted on Instagram on Thursday. “I am good, and so is my mother! …My lawyers are handling everything as we speak.” The post was later taken down.

Florida Department of Corrections records show he is currently on two-years probation for trafficking stolen property. Reporters at the home could see authorities filling a loading van with goods.
