Nelly - Drugs Allegedly Found On Nelly's Tour Bus In Texas
Rapper Nelly was detained in Texas on Wednesday (10Oct12) after local U.S. border patrol agents allegedly discovered drugs and a loaded firearm on his tour bus.
The Hot in Herre hitmaker was travelling through Sierra Blanca when a routine police search of his vehicle reportedly turned up 36 small baggies of heroin, over ten pounds (4.5 kilograms) of marijuana, and a loaded pistol.
Brian Keith Jones, a member of the star's entourage, has confessed the alleged items were his and he was subsequently taken into custody.
Nelly and the other passengers were then let go, according to Tmz.com.
The city is a popular hotspot for celebrity drug busts - singer Willie Nelson, rapper Snoop Dogg, and actor Armie Hammer have all been arrested on possession charges there.
