According to Court documents that two of the three weapons that Kodak Black purchased were found at crime scenes.
Court documents stated a jammed, loaded gun with live ammunition, and bore Kodak’s fingerprints was found at the scene of an apparent Pompano shooting last March.
The first time Kodak Black went in to purchase the guns last February, as he is out on bond stemming from separate sexual charges.
But Kodak provided an incorrect Social Security number and wrote “no” on the sections of a federal form that asked if he was ineligible to purchase a gun.
Another weapon that Kodak bought at Lou’s was found in the trunk of his vehicle while he attempted to cross the border into Canada last April. Authorities also found marijuana after searching the vehicle.
Kodak, born Bill K. Kapri, was arrested on May 11 as he reached at the Miami Gardens Hard Rock Stadium to perform at the Rolling Loud Music festival. A federal magistrate judge initially granted him his freedom to be released on a $550,000 dollar bond.

Kodak Black Sentencing:
Kodak Black’s lawyer is begging and arguing the judge for a lesser sentence because Kodak confessed to the crime while Kodak Black was sentenced to three years and eight months in prison.
The previous charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in South Carolina arises from Kodak Black’s alleged 2016 rape of an adult age high-school student, and faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
