  • US rapper Lil Wayne is charged.

  • During a search he was found in possession of a weapon.

  • Now the 38-year-old could go behind bars for 10 years.

Lil Wayne was found in possession of a gun and ammunition during a police search of a private jet in December 2019, according to court records.

Because the 38-year-old was convicted of another gun offense more than a decade ago, he is now facing up to ten years in prison. Convicted offenders are banned from carrying weapons in the US.

According to the Miami Herald newspaper, Lil Wayne admitted that the gold-plated pistol found in his luggage belongs to him. The gun was given to him as a present for Father’s Day.

In addition to the weapon, the police also found drugs, including cocaine, ecstasy and heroin, in his luggage and more than 25,000 dollars in cash. The five-time Grammy Award winner is due to appear in a Miami court on December 11th.
