Scammer Eivin Kent resists arrest after pretending to represent Stars Basketball Club

Share this article...

18-year-old Eivin Kent, 19-year-old Jaimon Darrell Boyd, and a minor were observed on camera holding a sign that solicited donations from passersby in front of The Pub around 6:45 p.m. on June 4th. Officers noticed they were using a Venmo Link, so they scanned the QR code on the signs. The code redirected them to a Venmo account address different from the one on the official team website. Kent would not give officers his identity, so they detained him. Officers discovered that the three were acting as representatives of the Stars Basketball Club. During a subsequent search, officers located a grinder, rolling paper, and scales. When they instructed him to sit inside the patrol car, he refused. Kent was taken into custody for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, the unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, and criminal impersonation.
