Federal prosecutors claim Chris Brown allegedly purchased narcotics from Harrison Garcia (right)
The names of Lil Wayne and Chris Brown have come up in the trial of alleged drug dealer Harrison Garcia.
Garcia, a music producer, is currently facing drug charges in Miami federal court. Wayne and Brown's names came up after investigators found photos of them with Garcia on his Instagram account.
In many of the photos Garcia is depicted living a lavish lifestyle. Posing with stacks of cash and exotic cars that prosecutors claim were purchased with funds provided by big time clients like Breezy and Wayne, according to the Miami Herald.
During one text exchange with a female, Garcia seems to suggest that a large sum of money transferred into his bank account from a "Christopher Brown" was from the singer.
“Look who put money my account,” Garcia wrote.
The woman responded: “What that for LOL”
Garcia replied with several smiley face emojis: “Drugs … lean and s***.”
On cross examination Garcia’s lawyer, Gustavo Lage, asked why the money transfer was of importance to the feds..
“You were very interested in the $15,000 wire transfer from Chris Brown,” Lage asked U.S. Homeland Security Agent Kevin Selent
“I was,” Selent replied.
Weezy was referenced in another text.
Garcia allegedly tells his "do-boy" that he'll "shoot you some trees," a reference to weed. “It’s for Wayne.”
When Garcia was arrested last October, he reportedly admitted that he'd sold the rapper "a lot of narcotics."
When pressed in court Thursday, April 6, for more details on the feds' interest in Brown and Wayne, Selent declined.
“It’s still an open investigation,” he testified. “I can’t talk about it.”
