‘Lil Boosie’ accused of prison smuggling scheme

26 May


Louisiana state police say rapper Torrence “Lil Boosie” Hatch may do more time in prison as new allegations emerge suggesting he schemed to try to smuggle codeine syrup, commomnly referred to as “sizzurp” into the state penitentiary at Angola.

Lt. Doug Cain says Hatch, who is serving time on an unrelated drug charge and awaiting trial on a murder charge, sought help from two fellow Baton Rouge residents in the alleged scheme. Hatch was booked Wednesday on charges of conspiracy to introduce contraband into a penal institution and inciting a felony.

Last year, Hatch was indicted after he allegedly paid someone to kill a 35-year-old man who was fatally shot in his home through a window, authorities said. He is potentially facing the death penalty as the result of the first-degree murder charge stemming from the shooting death of Terry Boyd amid other pending drug charges. The 28-year old Boosie has entered a plea of not-guilty regarding the murder case. He is also facing possession and distribution charges for marijuana, Ecstasy and codeine. Prosecutors have maintained that the case they’ve built is rife with proof that Hatch hired a hit-man to murder the 35-year old Boyd. Boosie is also suspected in five other murders, police officials say.

“Superbad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz,” debuted at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart in 2009.
