The marijuana on the buses was detected by a drug dog, said Agent Joe Trevino. The rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was among a dozen being detained from his group. They were later released.
Trevino said the buses were en route to Laredo, Texas, from a concert stop in Hidalgo.
The case has been referred to the Brooks County Sheriff’s Office.
Calls to Carter’s representatives were not immediately returned Friday.
The rapper is scheduled to begin a prison sentence in February stemming from gun charges in New York.
