 Border Patrol authorities seized marijuana, heroin and a loaded gun from the tour bus of Grammy-winning rapper Nelly at a checkpoint in West Texas, Reuters reports.

Nelly and the rest of his crew were released after a member of his entourage took the blame, according to Reuters.

“It is my understanding a member of my staff made an unfortunate decision to bring unlawful materials onto our tour bus that resulted in his arrest,” Nelly said in a statement Thursday. “Neither I nor anyone else on the tour bus was aware of his decision to bring these on board.”

The seizure happened at the same checkpoint where singers Fiona Apple and Willie Nelson, rapper Snoop Dogg and actor Armand Hammer found with controlled substances, Reuters reported.

Pop singer Fiona Apple was released from jail Thursday after authorities says she was busted with marijuana and hashish in her tour bus at the West Texas Border Patrol checkpoint, the Associated Press reports.

After drug-sniffing dogs detected pot, Apple’s bus was searched and authors found about four grams of marijuana and another four grams of hashish.

Apple could be charged with a felony for the hashish, which is considered more serious in the eyes of Texas officials, according to the AP.

Apple is just the latest celebrity arrested in Sierra Blanca on marijuana charges. Others include rapper Snoop Dogg, country singer Willie Nelson and actor Armand Hammer, the AP reported.
