Of the four suspects in June’s robbery murder of Pompano Beach rapper XXXTentacion, investigators don’t believe Robert Allen was one of the gunmen. And Allen is claiming there’s no proof he did anything illegal, so he should get bond.

Wednesday’s motion, filed by attorney James Lewis, says, “The proof is not Evident nor the Presumption great that the defendant committed any crime.”

If the 22-year-old Allen posts bond, the motion claims, he would stay at his mother’s Fort Lauderdale home. While waiting for his finacée to give birth, he would continue to work for a lawn care company.

Broward Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Keyla Concepcion confirms rapper XXXTentacion was killed in robbery in Deerfield Beach on June 18, 2018.

As is the case with Dedrick Williams, Michael Boatwright and Trayvon Newsome, Allen is held in Broward County Jail without bond on charges of first-degree murder and robbery with a deadly weapon. He also is being charged with a violation of probation until Sept. 30, 2021, for fraudulent use of identification and possession of a controlled substance.

According to Boatwright’s arrest warrant, a friend of Williams’ rented a 2017 Dodge Journey on June 17 and let Allen have the SUV. Investigators say that’s the SUV Allen is spotted on surveillance video getting out of with Williams to go into Riva Motorsports the next day before XXXTentacion’s murder. And, cops say, that’s the SUV that video shows Allen getting back into with Williams at Riva after buying the masks used in the robbery. And that’s the SUV detectives say video shows cutting off XXXTentacion’s BMW as the rapper left Riva’s parking lot.

BSO points to Newsome and Boatwright as the ones who got out of the SUV and shot the rapper (given name: Jahseh Onfroy) while taking a Louis Vuitton bag with $50,000 cash.

Allen was arrested at his sister’s house in Georgia on June 25.
