DIGITAL MUSIC NEWS: Chris Brown Faces Felony Drug Charges After $15,000 Wire Discovered

by  Daniel Adrian Sanchez

Chris Brown is now part of a narcotics investigation by federal authorities, with a $15,000 wire potentially resulting in felony charges. Lil Wayne is also suspected to be part of the investigation.

Miami music producer Harrison Garcia loved posting images of himself on Instagram. He uploaded photos of himself posing with Chris Brown and Lil Wayne, as well as shots of exotic cars and piles of cash. Now, under trial for federal drug charges, federal authorities may have discovered damning evidence against the popular hip-hop artists.

On Thursday, federal authorities revealed they’re investigating a $15,000 wire transfer from Brown to Garcia used to purchase illegal drugs.

The Miami Herald reports that Harrison Garcia said previously that the money was for drugs and the popular (but illegal) cough-syrup-and-soda mix ‘lean.’ A federal agent testified that following his capture last October, Garcia confessed to selling Lil Wayne ‘a lot of narcotics.’ The agent didn’t say more when Garcia’s defense attorney pressed for more details.

U.S. Homeland Security Agent Kevin Selent said,

“It’s still an open investigation. I can’t talk about it.”

Agents believe the 26-year-old music producer sold drugs to buy luxury cars, firearms, high-end sneakers, bags, and hats.

Under federal law, authorities could charge Chris Brown with felony drug possession. Authorities typically classify felony drug possession under four factors:

The type and amount of drug.
Possession for personal use or with intent to sell.
Various aggravating circumstances.
State drug possession laws.
Back in December, we wrote about the massive (and illegal) pharmaceutical drug operation. Garcia had allegedly sold the lethal lean, or ‘sizzrup’ drinks, via Instagram DMs. Chris Brown reportedly hung out with Garcia, also known as ‘Cuban Harry’. He would later appear on Brown’s ‘Cut It Baby (Freestyle)’ holding stacks of cash.

Lil Wayne also suffered seizures last year after abusing the drinks.

Garcia’s lawyers, Gustavo Lage and Percy Martinez, have suggested that their client didn’t deal drugs. Instead, he only purchased the expensive items to showboat on social media, hoping to gain a massive following. He used the guns ‘as props’ while dealing with an addiction to the drink made from promethazine with codeine.

In court, Martinez asked HIS Agent Geoffrey Goodwin,

“Some might say it’s a crime buying such expensive sneakers. But it’s not a crime, is it?”

Jurors also saw evidence of Lil Wayne and Chris Brown’s involvement through text messages seized from Garcia’s phone. Referring to marijuana, Garcia allegedly texted,

“I’ll shoot u some trees. It’s for Wayne.”

Garcia also sent a screenshot of a deposit boasting the $15,000 deposit from “Christopher Brown.”

“Look who put money my account.”

An unnamed woman texted back,

“what that for LOL”.

Garcia replied, “Drugs … lean and sh-t.”

His defense attorneys fired back that agents were actually targeting the rappers in the investigation. Lage told Agent Kevin Selent,

“You were very interested in the $15,000 wire transfer from Chris Brown.”

Agent Kevin Selent affirmed the interest.

The trial will continue before U.S. Judge Patricia Seitz. If the accusations are true, authorities may soon go after Chris Brown and Lil Wayne.
