A Member of Nelly’s Entourage Admits That Drugs Found on Rapper’s Tour Bus Belonged to Him, Not Nelly

Nelly Drug Bust

Rapper Nelly is the most recent entertainer to be added to the list of famous celebrities who have been detained or arrested due to drug-related issues at the Sierra Blanca border of west Texas.

If you recall, last month RecoveryNowTV informed you of Fiona Apple’s arrest, when her tour bus traveling through west Texas, was stopped by Hudspeth County officers.

After searching Apple’s tour bus and discovering drugs, specifically marijuana, Apple was arrested and detained in the Hudspeth County jail.

In this case, although officers found drugs on the tour bus of the chart-topping rapper, he apparently was not responsible as they did not belong to him.

In fact, a passenger on the rapper’s tour bus identified as Brian Keith Jones admitted that the drugs belonged to him. Jones is an employed member of the rapper’s entourage.

Subsequently, Jones was placed under arreste and transported to the Hudspeth County jail, where he is currently being held.

According to msn’s wonderwall, following a routine search of the rapper’s tour bus, with canine dogs, officers discovered more than 10 pounds of marijuana.

Additionally, officers located as much as 36 bags of heroin, as well as a pistol. We should note that each bag of heroin that was located was small in size according to officers.

In the meantime, once Jones admitted that the controlled substances and the pistol were his own, Cornell Iral Haynes Jr, otherwise known as the rapper Nelly, and five others, members of his entourage were released from detention.

Nelly will perform in Austin, Texas next month along with Enrique Iglesias Jr. and Flo Rida among others. So, that explains why Nelly was in Texas.

Though, it is interesting that the rapper would arrive so early for a November performance. More shall be revealed.

For your information, Snoop Dogg, Armie Hammer, and even Willie Nelson, are well-known entertainers who have been arrested while traveling through the town.
