Chris Brown & Lil Wayne Investigated For Drug Ties
Testimony in the federal drug trial of Miami music producer Harrison Garcia has revealed Chris Brown and Lil Wayne are also under investigation in the federal drug case.
Text messages and wire transfers have linked Breezy and Weezy to the producer and U.S. Homeland Security plans to get to the bottom of it.
Via the Miami Herald:
Federal authorities on Thursday revealed they are investigating a $15,000 wire transfer last year from Brown to the bank account of Garcia, who boasted that the money was for drugs and the popular cough syrup-and-soda known as “lean.” And Garcia, when he was first arrested last October, confessed that he sold Lil Wayne “a lot of narcotics,” a federal agent testified on Thursday in Garcia’s trial for drug dealing.
Pressed for more details by Garcia’s defense attorney, the agent declined to say more.
“It’s still an open investigation,” U.S. Homeland Security Agent Kevin Selent testified. “I can’t talk about it.”
The revelation came on the third day of testimony in the trial for Garcia, the 26-year-old who agents believe sold drugs to buy a fleet of luxury cars, a cache of firearms and scores of high-end sneakers, bags and hats.
Garcia’s lawyers, Gustavo Lage and Percy Martinez, have suggested that Garcia was not a drug dealer but was only showboating to build a social-media following, using the guns “as props” while dealing with an addiction to the drink made from promethazine with codeine.
They’ve also suggested that agents were using Garcia to notch a “feather in the cap” by going after bigger names — specifically Brown and Lil Wayne.
