A judge set $160,000 bond for Sean Kingston’s mother, Janice Turner, who spent the night in the Broward County Jail.

Turner, 61, is charged with fraud and theft. She was still in the Broward County Jail as of Friday evening.

Sean Kingston is in a California jail awaiting extradition to South Florida. Kingston will spend Memorial Day weekend in the San Bernardino County Detention Center.

SWAT teams and dozens of deputies with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office served search warrants at Kingston’s rental home near Ft. Lauderdale.

The raid was in connection with a $150,000 stolen goods case, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities say the rapper and his mother stole more than $1 million through an organized scheme of fraud and deception.

According to the warrants, Kingston, his mother and others stole cash, jewelry, a Cadillac Escalade, furniture and a high end home theater in recent months.

The documents state a Cadillac Escalade valued at $159,701.49 was fraudulently obtained from an exotic car dealership.

Kingston was unbothered in a post on his Instagram Stories prior to his arrest.

“People love negative energy! I am good and so is my mother! My lawyers are handling everything as we speak,” he wrote.

Robert Rosenblatt, an attorney for the Kingstons, said on Friday that Sean Kingston would return to Florida voluntarily if he wasn’t locked up in California.

Rosenblatt added that allowing Kingston to bond out of jail and travel to Florida at his own expense would save taxpayers “the expense of extradition and the costs of travel for the detectives and Sean.”

“We look forward to addressing these (charges) in court and are confident of a successful resolution for Sean and his mother,” Rosenblatt said.

Kingston had a No. 1 hit with “Beautiful Girls” in 2007. The music video for “Beautiful Girls” was viewed over 1.2 billion times on YouTube (watch below).
