Nelly landed in a derrty dilemma while crossing the border Wednesday night (Oct. 10).

A loaded gun, heroin and massive amounts of weed were seized from the Country Grammar rapper’s tour bus, authorities told TMZ. A police dog detected the drugs at a checkpoint in Sierra Bianca–the same stop that has busted Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg for drug possession–after Nelly’s bus was halted by cops.

The search produced 36 small bags of heroin (totaling .64 ounces), over ten pounds of marijuana in a large green duffel bag and a loaded .45 caliber pistol.

Law enforcement officials said a passenger named Brian Keith Jones admitted the drugs and gun were his and was subsequently placed under arrest. Nelly and the other five on the bus were released.
