Drugs, gun found on Nelly's bus

12 October 2012, 11:04

Sierra Blanca - Authorities say they found drugs and a gun on rapper Nelly's tour bus at a West Texas border checkpoint where several celebrities have been arrested.

Hudspeth County sheriff's officials said an initial search late on Wednesday turned up small amounts of marijuana and heroin and a loaded gun.

Authorities say a second search revealed a duffel bag with about 4.54kg of pot.

Officials say one of the occupants was arrested after admitting the drugs and gun belonged to him.

In a statement, Nelly blamed his staff member. The rapper said, "Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these."

Previous drug-related arrests of celebrities at the checkpoint near Sierra Blanca included Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Fiona Apple and actor Armie Hammer.
