SIERRA BLANCA, TEXAS—Rapper Nelly has been detained after police found a loaded gun and drugs on his tour bus.

Nelly, also known as Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr., was detained yesterday after his tour bus was stopped and searched at a border patrol checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, Texas. Police say they found a .45 caliber pistol, along with heroin and marijuana in a duffle bag.

All of the passengers on the tour bus were detained; however, once one of the passengers admitted that the contraband belonged to him, Nelly and the remaining passengers were released.

Nelly nor his publicist has not issued a comment.
