According to 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.”
“It’s still an open investigation,” U.S. Homeland Security Agent Kevin Selent testified. “I can’t talk about it.”
Investigators later presented a series of text messages in which Garcia appears to order a drug delivery for Weezy: “I’ll shoot u some trees,” he wrote in a text. “It’s for Wayne.”
The producer also sent a woman a screenshot of the $15,000 wire transfer from a “Christopher Brown.” “Look who put money [in] my account,” Garcia boasted. The woman asked what the payment was for, to which Garcia replied: “Drugs … lean and shit.”
The trial will continue Friday before U.S. Judge Patricia Seitz.
