Rapper Nelly was detained by Texas law enforcement on Wednesday (Oct. 11) while police searched his tour bus, where they found 36 small bags of heroin and more than 10 pounds of marijuana. They also found a loaded .45 caliber pistol, reports TMZ.
The bus was stopped in Sierra Blanca at a border patrol checkpoint when a police canine detected drugs. Six additional people riding on Nelly's bus at the time were also detained during the search. One of the passengers, Brian Keith Jones, admitted that the heroin, marijuana and gun were his and was arrested.
