Baton Rouge, Louisiana rapper, ‘Lil Boosie’ real name Torrence Hatch, has been accused of trying to smuggle drugs into the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. Louisiana State Troopers said that Hatch, 28 and two others, Arthur Stewart and Titus Franklin, both 27, were allegedly in the process of trying to get codeine syrup into the State Prison.
WAFB, the Baton Rouge news channel, reported that the Louisiana State Police detectives and the East Baton Rouge Violent Crimes Unit stated that they received information that the trio were conspiring to smuggle the Controlled Dangerous Substance (CDS) into Angola, where Hatch (Boosie) is incarcerated. Investigators said the other two men, Stewart and Franklin made arrangements through an undercover agent to have the Codeine delivered to Hatch.
All three have been charged with conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution and Hatch has also been charged with inciting a felony.
Lil Boosie released his fourth studio album ‘Incarcerated’ in September 2010 while serving time for gun possession and is currently being held on a charge of 1st degree murder in the death of 35 year old Terry Boyd, who was killed in his home back in October 2009.
