The Drake tour bus robbery suspect is behind bars after allegedly swiping $3 million worth of bling from the vehicle this week in Arizona.

According to The Associated Press, Phoenix police recovered the jewelry after using surveillance footage from Talking Stick Resort Arena to identify suspect Travion King, 21. King is accused of taking the goods from a tour bus the rapper was sharing with DJ Future the Prince on Tuesday while they were performing. It's not clear who it belongs to, but police said it is not Drake's.

After identifying King as the suspect, police located him in jail. The AP reported that Arizona State University campus police picked him up early Wednesday morning for trespassing.

He has since been charged with the burglary.

Police told local media that the suspect has done work at local venues in the past, azfamily.com reported. He was reportedly able to get away with a briefcase containing the jewelry within a 15-minute window during the concert.

The “bus was parked in the lower garage,” authorities told "Entertainment Tonight." “Between 10 p.m. and 10:15 p.m., a suspect boarded the bus and removed a briefcase containing an estimated $3 million in jewelry and property.”

Neither Drake's nor Future the Prince’s representatives have commented on the matter.
The rapper has been co-headlining his “Summer Sixteen” tour with Future since mid-July, which has included dates around the U.S. and in his beloved home country of Canada. This tour comes after Drake’s last album, “Views,” which was released earlier this year.
