Drugs and gun found on Nelly's bus

Drugs and a gun were found on rapper Nelly's tour bus at a West Texas checkpoint where several celebrities have been arrested, US authorities have said.

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

Authorities said a second search revealed a duffel bag containing about 10lb (4.5kg) of marijuana.

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

Nelly and five other people were released.

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

A publicist for Nelly, whose birth name is Cornell Iral Haynes, was not available for comment.
