Big Mike Arrested For Music Piracy…

 |  June 15, 2011

Damn.  Can’t say I’m surprised.  Dude was making some decent money.  That being said this is a perfect example of how everything is a$$ backwards these days.  How is the RIAA bugging about hand to hand cd’s in a digital age?  They need to holler at the biggest enabler of piracy in the world.  According to the NewtownPatch:

Surveillance teams poured hours into following suspects named “Little Mike” or “Big Mike,” also known as “DJ Big Mike,” trailing them for miles. Local police executed search warrants on three homes in Danbury, Bethel and Newtown, in addition to conducting numerous interviews with suspected accomplices.

A search warrant was then executed on the Steson Place home where Danbury police found about 3,500 disks suspected of containing pirated music and inserts to make about 40,000 items, according to the affidavit. Songs by Lil Wayne, Mya, The Dream and G Unit and other Universal artists were part of what was found, according to the affidavit.
