The 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Lola Chantrelle Mitchell, was one of two suspects taken into custody this week in the July 23 armed robbery of a Dollar General Store, Olive Branch police said. She was charged with conspiracy to commit the crime of armed robbery.
Marcus Curtis, 30, of Memphis, was extradited from the Shelby County Jail to Olive Branch, where he is being held on $100,000 bond on armed robbery charges.
Boo proclaimed her innocence on Thursday on her Twitter page, where she also retweeted dozens of messages of support from friends and fans.
Police Maj. Tim Presley would not elaborate on Mitchell's role, and would only say an investigation led to the suspects.
The pair are accused in the holdup that occurred about 9 p.m. at 10956 Nichols. A man armed with a revolver ordered clerks there to help him bag money and then he demanded they lie down while he fled the store.
