Safaree Samuels alleged robbers were indicted on seven counts.

Love and Hip Hop star Safaree Samuels is now breathing a sigh of relief after the three men who robbed him last year at gunpoint. The three men, Shawn Harewood, Tacuma Ashman, and Carl Harry, are persons whom Safaree knew very well. Cops arrested after a surveillance camera captured them robbing the rapper before fleeing the scene with over $180K in jewelry and cash. TMZ reported that the three men were slapped with a 7-count indictment.

The indictment includes unlawful possession of a gun in the second degree and armed robbery in the first degree. Prosecutors threw in an additional count for resisting arrest. That happened when the men crashed the car they were fleeing in before abandoning it and fled on foot. Cops later cornered them and took them into custody.

Safaree and at least one of the men were close friends prior to the robbery. The three men are now facing up to 20 years in prison for the robbery.

Safaree previously spoke about how the robbery traumatized him to the extent he ditched all of his expensive jewelry in an effort not to attract more robbers.
