by at . Comments

Rapper Nelly was detained last night as police officers searched his tour bus at a Texas checkpoint and found heroin, marijuana and a loaded gun on board.

Nelly's bus was stopped by the border patrol in Sierra Blanca, where Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Armie Hammer and Fiona Apple have been popped recently.

A police canine detected the presence of drugs.

After performing a search, officials found 36 small bags of heroin (totaling .64 ounces), over 10 pounds of weed in a duffel bag and a loaded .45 caliber pistol.

The rapper was not arrested, however.

Brian Keith Jones, one of seven passengers on board the bus, admitted the drugs and the gun were his. He was subsequently placed under arrest.

Nelly and the others were cut loose.

Why on Earth anyone is driving around with all those items at all - let alone through the most notorious checkpoint in the U.S. - is a question we can't answer.
