Justin Bieber's tour bus was reportedly raided by police in Sweden last night (April 24), with officials apparently finding a small amount of marijuana on board.
According to Swedish paper Aftonbladet, a spokesperson for the Stockholm police department confirmed that around 7.10 p.m. local time an officer detected the smell of weed around JB's bus, which was parked outside of the Grand Hotel.
After the bus left the hotel on its way to the Boyfriend singer's show at the Globe Arena, the officer contacted the narcotics unit, which issued a warrant to search the vehicle.
A press officer for the Stockholm PD told the paper: "A colleague felt a strong smell of marijuana, like someone had been smoking in the bus."
An hour after JB took the stage, cops searched the empty bus in the parking garage and found a small amount of narcotics, which local papers reported was marijuana, as well as a taser.
At press time, no suspect has been identified yet and the bus was not impounded.
Bieber's spokesperson has declined to comment on the matter, but an unnamed source close to the 19-year old's crew told the paper that "panic" broke out when police — who also demanded access to Justin's dressing room — raided the bus.
The insider recalled: "A couple of dancers started running around screaming 'No weed!' and another member of Bieber's crew yelled, 'S**t, the stash!'"
After the show, Justin and his team moved on to his next gig in Helsinki.
At press time, TMZ reported that police do not expect to charge anyone because they don't know who was in possession of the drug, which was found on the floor of the bus.
