Newsome has been charged with first degree murder and robbery with a deadly weapon.
He reportedly turned himself into the authorities through his lawyer, following a manhunt.
Meanwhile, the other indicted suspects Robert Allen, Michael Boatwright and Dedrick Williams are also now in police custody.
According to Florida police, XXXTentacion took out $50,000 in cash before he was tragically murdered back in June.
The rapper is said to have placed the cash inside of a Louis Vuitton bag, which four suspects robbed from him at a car dealership called Riva Motorsports, before fatally shooting him.
Lil Pump and Smokepurrp recently brought out XXXTentaction’s mother at show in Miami, in tribute to the fallen rapper.
