On same day as Atlanta rapper’s murder charge is dropped, he’s tied to Airbnb robbery

An Atlanta rapper is no longer under house arrest after pleading guilty Monday to a burglary charge in a 2015 case while avoiding a murder conviction.

However, the same day, his name was brought up several times in court for his alleged connection to an unrelated armed robbery case at an Airbnb in southeast Atlanta that also involved two Life University lacrosse players.

Yung Bans, whose legal name is Vas Coleman, was mentioned in Monday’s bond hearing for Lyndsey Kallish, 19, and Lauren Rielly, 20. The two women are accused of driving two masked men Nov. 8 to rob seven people at an Airbnb on Wylie Street. They were both denied bond, AJC.com previously reported.

“An individual by the name of Vas Coleman has also been mentioned in this case,” Rielly’s attorney, Drew Findling, said in court. 

Findling mentioned that Coleman, 20, and Maxx Pritchett, 23, who is charged as one of the masked men in the Airbnb robbery, were both suspects in the 2015 homicide case of Jose Raman Green, 51. The man died after jumping from a third-floor balcony to escape intruders on Dec. 8, 2015, AJC.com previously reported.

They pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary charges, receiving probation sentences while avoiding murder convictions in connection with Green’s death, court records show.
