Records say Wayne was arrested in December 2019 when his luggage was checked at Opa-locka Executive Airport. Officials said they found a loaded gold-plated, .45-caliber handgun in the luggage. Authorities said they also found personal use amounts of cocaine, ecstasy, and oxycodone.

“Your honor, I plead guilty to the charge,” Wayne said to U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams.

“I must say I thought it was a very viable motion. He has decided not to pursue a motion to suppress,” Wayne’s lawyer, Howard Srebnick said. Ronald Richards, another attorney for Wayne said, “the federal sentencing guidelines call for substantially lower and I would not look at the maximum exposure to decide anyone’s sentence and all the facts need to be thoroughly reviewed.”

Reports say Wayne’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 28, 2021.

According to the reports, Wayne is currently free on $250,000 bail.
