One of Lil Wayne’s backing dancers has been arrested for allegedly stealing items including a laptop from the set of the rapper’s latest music video.
The hip-hop star was filming scenes with artist Porcelain Black at Citrus College in Glendora, California when a number of valuable items went missing from the venue.

Police were called to investigate after a portable computer, a Louis Vuitton purse, a wallet and tickets to an NBA All-Star game were reportedly taken from the set.

Cops used a GPS tracking device within the laptop to trace the haul to the home of 20-year-old Marco Negrete, who was appearing as a back-up dancer in the promo, reports the Whittier Daily News.

Negrete was arrested and taken to Glendora prison, where he is being held on $20,000 bail.
