Texas police confiscated heroin, a large amount of marijuana and a loaded handgun from Nelly‘s tour bus last night (Oct. 10).

The “Hot in Herre” rapper’s bus was pulled over at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas, where a police dog detected the illegal substances. TMZ reports that the subsequent search turned up 36 baggies of heroin, totaling .64 ounces, and over 10 pounds of marijuana inside a large green duffel bag. A loaded .45 caliber pistol was also found.

Including Nelly, there were seven people aboard the tour bus at the time of the search, all of whom were detained, until one of the passengers, Brian Keith Jones, assumed responsibility for the drugs and firearm.

Jones is currently in police custody, while Nelly and the rest of his entourage were allowed to return to their bus and leave. Nelly has yet to make a public comment regarding the arrest.

The St. Louis, Mo., rapper has been rumored to be a habitual cocaine user, an allegation he recently denied.
