A police canine detected the presence of drugs inside the rapper's tour bus which was crossing the Texas borderline.
Nelly's touring bus hid heroin, loaded gun and weed among others. The rapper's traveling vehicle was raided by Texas police officers on Wednesday, October 10 night at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca.
A police dog sniffed the drugs and prompted the officers to search the bus. There were seven people on board at that time, including the rapper. They were all detained after officers found .64 ounces of heroin in 36 small bags, over 10 pounds of marijuana inside a large green duffel bag and a loaded .45 caliber pistol.
One of the passengers, named Brian Keith Jones, came forward to admit that the drugs and gun were his, TMZ reported. He was subsequently arrested while the rest of the passengers were released. Nelly is yet to comment on the incident.
The border checkpoint has busted other celebrities in the past including Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, and most recently, Fiona Apple.
