OPA-LOCKA, FLA. (WSVN) - Federal agents have seized guns and cocaine from a plane that landed at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport with rapper Lil Wayne on board, according to published reports.
According to the Miami Herald, the aircraft landed at the airport Monday after taking off from California earlier in the day.
The moment the plane landed, it was searched.
The search led to authorities finding a .45 caliber handgun, cocaine, heroine, ecstasy and other drugs in the rapper’s bag, the paper reported.
The Herald’s report said charges could be filed soon in federal court.
Wayne’s attorney said his client does not own the plane, and the rapper was allowed to leave the airport.
The attorney said his law firm does not represent the plane’s owner.
The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating the case.
This is not Wayne’s first run-in with local authorities.
Back in 2015, police swarmed his Miami Beach mansion after they received reports of a shooting.
They later confirmed it was a hoax.
Most recently, in May, Wayne refused to perform at Rolling Loud because of a mandatory police check.
“I do not and will not ever settle for being policed to do my job,” he wrote on Twitter at the time.
