New Orleans rapper Lil Wayne flew from California to Miami recently, and was met by federal agents when he landed.
Wayne was held at Miami-Opa locka airport on Monday, Dec.23, while the FBI and ATF searched his private jet for guns and drugs. Miami-Dade police dept. received a tip about the incoming plane and alerted federal agents, who were able to obtain a search warrant before the plane landed. During the search, investigators found cocaine and a gun. The Gulfstream G-V can hold 14 passengers and crew, however it is unclear how many people were aboard. Everyone was made to wait during the search but no arrests were made.
According to Miami defense lawyer Howard Srebnick, Wayne was “cleared” to leave the scene on Monday evening. The rapper has reportedly owned a home in Miami for a few years.
