Kevin Gates paid a visit to the Elayn Hunt Correctional Center to see incarcerated rapper C-Murder, but now his visit is reportedly under investigation.
Following the visit, Gates and C-Murder posted a photo of Gates flashing several hundred dollar bills; the issue is, The Louisiana Department of Corrections doesn’t allow sums of over $300 to be brought into the prisons. Anything over that amount is deemed contraband – so Gates is in clear violation.
“As indicated in the photograph, it appears Mr. Gates had a large sum of cash, which is unacceptable, and a violation,” department spokesman Ken Pastorick said. “It is against Elayn Hunt Correctional Center policy to bring case exceeding $300 into the prison, and any amount above that is considered contraband.”
As of press time, it’s unclear what penalties Gates could face.
