 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.
