A man has been arrested in connection with the theft of a reported $ 3 million worth of jewelry taken from Drake’s tour bus. The robbery took place on Tuesday while Drake was performing at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, AZ.
NBC 12 News in Phoenix reports that Arizona State University police arrested the suspect, Travion King, early Wednesday morning when he was caught trespassing on the college’s Tempe, AZ, campus and was found with the jewelry.
The jewelry, which reportedly belongs to Drake’s DJ, Future the Prince, had been stored in a briefcase on the bus. Authorities believe that it was a targeted theft made by someone who would likely know the area since the busses were located in the lower section of the venue’s garage. Police told NBC 12 News that King “had done contract work with venues in the past.”
King was described as transient by police and was charged with felony burglary, according to TMZ.
In more positive Drake news, Kanye West revealed that he and Drake are working on a collaborative album. Drake is currently in the midst of his Summer Sixteen tour with Future, which headed to Los Angeles on Wednesday for a three-night stint at Staples Center.
