Several loaded hardcore handguns and boxes of ammunition were all found in the bag along with $39,500 in cash. Damn!
According to the NY Daily News:
Daniels-Butler's husband, Henry (Black) Butler, has been under investigation by the feds for alleged drug dealing.
He was arrested last month near his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and charged with transporting significant quantities of cocaine from Los Angeles to New York.
Shortly after his arrest, officers from the Ventura County Sheriff's Department placed his home under surveillance while federal prosecutor Todd Kaminsky tried to arrange a search of the premises.
That's when officers saw his 44-year-old wife leave the home, carrying at least one bag, and drive away in a Mercedes-Benz.
They stopped the luxury sedan and she consented to a search, according to an affidavit filed by Drug Enforcement Administration agent Steven Miller.
A loaded 9-mm. handgun, an unloaded Intratec Tec-9 handgun, several loaded magazines and boxes of ammunition were found in the bag along with $39,500 in cash.
"There is probable cause to believe that the items recovered from the Leah Daniels-Butler vehicle were evidence of Henry Butler's drug trafficking," Miller stated.
Lee is already taking care of his brother's two kids as his own. Damn homie....
