Border police find 10 pound of marijuana and some heroin on Nelly's tour bus




For some reason, musicians keep going to Sierra Blanca, Texas, to cross the border and keep getting busted with drugs. It's happened to Willie Nelson, Armie Hammer, Snoop Dogg and Fiona Apple, and now it's happened to rapper Nelly (although he wasn't the one arrested). His tour bus was stopped and cops found heroin, a loaded handgun and more than 10 flippin' pounds of Mary Jane. He probably shouldn't be traveling with that much anywhere.

TMZ reports cops searched the bus and found 0.64 ounces of heroin and the weed in a duffel bag, plus a .45-caliber pistol with a full magazine, all of which were claimed by some guy named Brian Keith Jones, so at least Nelly's out of hot water for that. Jones was arrested, and Nelly and five others on the bus who had been detained were released.

You've got to wonder, why would anyone think it's fine to hit a border crossing with that much of anything illegal? And you also have to wonder, did Jones draw the short straw and have to cop to the stash when the cops found it, or is it all really his? Because Nelly should really quit giving that guy rides.
