How were they tipped off? As Gawker points out, Neon Best posted photos to his Instagram account of rolls of cash and weapons that he claimed to be selling out of an Ocean Hill music studio. The photos were noticed by NYPD narcotics investigators last year. The police were then able to connect Best to his friend Omole Adedji and follow the guns to their source in North and South Carolina.
