YNW Melly caught with Shanks and pipe bombs in Broward County Jail cell

Correctional officers found a variety of dangerous contraband in YNW MellyThe rapper’s jail bedroom, including shanks, prescription drugs and pipe bombs, with the rapper’s visitation rights now restricted as he awaits trial for a double murder in Florida.

The “Murder On My Mind” rapper, whose real name is Jamell Maurice Demons, was arrested after another inmate claimed he had multiple guns in his cell, according to AllHipHop.

Court documents show that Melly’s attorneys have already filed a motion to lift those restrictions at the Broward County Jail in Fort Lauderdale, where Melly is currently incarcerated.

Melly’s attorneys try to distance rapper from contraband, claim it was another inmate’s belongings

However, his lawyers tried to distance the rapper from bootlegging, saying that although “Mr. Demons (himself) was found with a writing utensil and potato chips,” another inmate in his dorm “was found in possession of legs, prescription drugs and other contraband,” according to a statement from Melly’s attorneys.

“On or about the end of March 2022, another inmate filed a complaint alleging that Mr. Demons was in possession of mangoes and pipe bombs,” his legal team wrote. “In response, corrections staff conducted a search of the entire bedroom at which time Mr. Demons was found with one (1) writing utensil and potato chips. However, another inmate was found in the bedroom in possession of legs, prescription drugs, and other contraband.”

The rapper’s attorneys went on to say that he “had no relationship with this inmate,” and yet Melly’s visitation restrictions remain in place, the outlet reports.

“Although Mr. Demons has no relationship with this inmate, Mr. Demons and his attorneys are unable to have regular visits due to the discovery of contraband in the possession of a third inmate. More than five (5) months have passed, which is more than enough time for the facility housing Mr. Demons to make a determination regarding the allegations set forth in the complaint.”

The smuggling is the rapper’s latest offense since his 2019 incarceration, records show.

This is not the first problem Melly has faced since her incarceration in the Broward County Jail. He was denied release even though he contracted COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021, and was punished by prison staff for promoting his album “Just a Moment of Slime” with an Instagram video.

Officials confiscated her Gucci clothing and denied her access to video visits for three months after that violation.

His phone privileges were similarly revoked earlier this year.

Melly also had an abscessed tooth caused by her diamond grills, but was denied an emergency release from prison by a judge to seek proper dental care.

The rapper remains behind bars while awaiting trial for the double murder of two friends in 2018

The 23-year-old was facing life in prison for the shooting deaths of two friends, Anthony Williams (also known as YNW Sakchaser) and Christopher Thomas Jr. (also known as YNW Juvy), in October 2018.

But in July the shadow room reported that he no longer faced the death penalty in his double-murder case after his attorneys discovered prosecutors failed to serve a notice of intent to seek the death penalty, a little-known rule in Florida criminal procedure.
