According to law enforcement sources, Nelly’s bus was stopped at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca — and a police canine detected the presence of drugs.
We’re told cops pulled the bus over — and after performing a search, they found 36 small baggies of heroin (totaling .64 ounces) and over TEN POUNDS of marijuana inside a large green duffel bag (an amount roughly the size of a large bed pillow).
Cops also say they found a loaded .45 caliber pistol.
There were seven people riding on Nelly’s bus at the time – including the rapper – and they were all detained during the search.
According to law enforcement sources, one of the passengers – a guy named Brian Keith Jones – admitted the drugs and the gun were his. He was subsequently placed under arrest.
