(AllHipHop News) You can not judge a book by its cover but you can make a pretty good attempt based off a rapper’s name. Brett Scipio, better known as New Orleans rapper Weedy was arrested on April 3rd for possession of five pounds of marijuana.
The massive mount of marijuana was discovered by St. Bernard police after it was delivered from Oakland, California to a home in Chalmette , Louisiana. Weedy was one of five people arrested in connection to the drug bust.
Weedy was arrested after the police requested he pull over his vehicle. His two children and a handgun were also present at the time of his arrest.
The head of the St. Bernard Police Sheriff’s Special Investigations Division Chad Clark says the five men were preparing to run a marijuana shop out of the Chalmette home.
The unemployed Weedy was released on a $37,000 bond St. Bernard Parish Prison. He is charged with possession with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm while in possession of the marijuana and possession of a controlled, dangerous substance in the presence of juveniles.
