*After performing at Georgia Southern University Saturday night, all three members of the rap group Migos were arrested on drug and weapon charges as they left the stage.
The group and its crew rolled up to the Statesboro campus in two vans, Bulloch County sheriff’s officials said in a statement to The Associated Press. Members of a crime suppression team made up of Statesboro police and sheriff’s deputies detected “a very potent smell” of marijuana coming from the two vehicles, sheriff’s officials said in the statement.
As they went inside Hanner Fieldhouse to perform, investigators contacted the drivers of both vehicles. A search of the vans found multiple guns, marijuana and another undisclosed drug, sheriff’s officials said.
“These discoveries were intensely concerning as the drugs and firearms had been brought to a university sponsored event where over a thousand students were congregated,” sheriff’s officials wrote in the statement sent by Bulloch County Chief Deputy Jared Akins.
The three members – 24-year-old Quavious Marshall, 20-year-old Kirschnick Ball and 23-year-old Kiari Cephus – face charges of drug possession; possession of firearms in a school safety zone; and possession of firearms during the commission of a crime, sheriff’s officials said.
About a dozen other suspects — all occupants of the two vans — were also taken into custody following the concert. Information about them and the charges they face was not immediately available.
The arrests took place during the school’s annual spring concert. Migos had contracted with Georgia Southern to perform at the event, the sheriff’s office said.
