Hot! Reginald Wright Arrested on Drug Trafficking Charges

 

Retired Sheriff Lieutenant Reginald Wright Sr. Arrested on Drug Trafficking Charges along with his son, Former Officer Reggie Wright Jr. from the Compton Police that also once served as the CEO of Death Row Records.

Two very high-profile operators were arrested last week from an indictment out of Tennessee that accuses them and 20 others of Drug Trafficking and Money Laundering. Many innocent people are breathing a sigh of relief that these two are now behind bars. But if history repeats itself the pair will game the system once again.

In the final days of Suge Knight running Death Row Records, he made a prophetic statement, “This is now the new and untouchable Death Row Records.” At the time there was a task force that included the D.A’s office investigating Death Row Records for drug trafficking and money laundering. Days after Tupac’s death Suge Knight is arrested on a probation violation. All of the investigations cease when Reggie Wright Jr. takes the helm as CEO of the record label and former Mayor Omar Bradley says there was no difference between Death Row Records and the Compton Police from that time on, “they functioned as one entity.”

Reggie Wright Jr. was accused previously of beating Dwayne H. Baudy, Death Row Records paid Baudy $162,000 and the criminal charges disappeared. Both of the Wrights were accused of being a part of missing cocaine from the evidence locker as detailed in the Compton Police Corruption Report. Junior’s name was in a drug dealer’s pay/owe book and Senior was fingered for always wanting to know where warrants were being executed ahead of time so he could organize pre-raids. The Compton Police Corruption Report details almost 200 kilos of missing cocaine that flowed through the evidence locker and was lost through a loophole in their system that involved the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. As cases were rejected, tracking on the evidence ceased. Eric Perrodin was Reggie Wright Jr.’s patrol partner who became an Assistant District Attorney. Perrodin served as Compton Mayor while simultaneously serving as Assistant District Attorney – which is a severe conflict of interest.

The evidence found during the investigation of the Corrupt Compton Police was sufficient to disband the department. When that evidence was presented to the DA’s Office there were no prosecutions. Two kilos of cocaine were found in the Police Chief’s personal locker but that crime also was never pursued. Instead, the man that ordered the investigation, Omar Bradley, was pursued over corruption charges that resulted in a conviction and three-year prison term, but that conviction was overturned on appeal. The DA continues to pursue Bradley to this day.
