Lil Wayne, Entourage Detained in Texas for Marijuana Possession

Lil Wayne has been detained since earlier this evening after Texas border patrol agents discovered traces of marijuana on his tour buses.

Wayne’s group was stopped in Falfurrias, 100 miles from the Mexican border, as part of a routine stop done by border patrols.

Outside the two buses, a patrol K-9 picked up the marijuana smell, prompting the agents to search the vehicles.


The search yielded an undisclosed amount of marijuana on both buses, and Lil Wayne along with 11 members of his entourage were taken into custody.

The superstar was on his way to Laredo for a concert at the Laredo Entertainment Center.

That event has now been postponed.

At press time Lil Wayne and his party remain detained at an undisclosed Border Patrol checkpoint, but has not been arrested and charged with any crimes.

*UPDATE*

Lil Wayne and his entourage have been released, according to Border Patrol Agent Joe Trevino.

An investigation is now open, and will be handled by the Brook's County Sheriff's Office.

Wayne and Cash Money Records have not released any statements at press time.
