420 grams of marijuana and 26 ounces of codeine were recovered, along with Xanax; one person was taken into police custody and two were issued citations
Three people were charged in Boone, North Carolina, on Thursday after drugs were discovered on the tour bus of rap group Migos.
According to Boone Police, security officers for the concert at Holmes Convocation Center smelled marijuana coming from the bus as the group left the venue.
The bus was stopped on North Carolina Highway 105 and it was thoroughly searched. The police found 420 grams of marijuana, 26 ounces of codeine and Xanax in the tour bus.
Following the search, one person was taken into police custody and two were issued citations. 26-year-old Jharon Ahmad Murphy, of Snellville, Georgia, was charged with felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell or deliver, as well as misdemeanor possession of codeine.
25-year-old Daryl Irvon McPherson, of Cleveland, Ohio was cited for simple possession of marijuana and codeine, and the 26-year-old Dominic Kevin Spigner of Smyrna, Georgia, was cited for misdemeanor possession of Xanax.
None of the men charged are members of the group.
Migos, made up of members Quavo, Offset and Takeoff, are an American hip hop group from Lawrenceville and have previously been linked to trouble with the law. In February last year, the artists allegedly got into a brawl with singer Sean Kingston in Las Vegas, which ended in a bout of gunfire. One gunshot was fired and none got injured.
The alleged shooter, Moises Johnson, 28, was arrested at the Clark County Detention Center on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and discharging a firearm where people may be endangered.
By the time police came and arrested Moises, Migos and Sean Kingston had fled the venue. In 2015, Quavo and Offset were both arrested following a concert appearance for possession of cocaine, OxyContin and codeine, as well as on charges of carrying a loaded weapon in a school zone.
