Police discovered two semi-automatic pistols and a 12-gauge pump shotgun, along with some prescription painkillers and marijuana residue, on a tour bus occupied by Tauheed Epps — better known as rapper 2 Chainz — and 10 other men, according to papers filed Tuesday in Oklahoma County District Court.
Charges are pending, according to the search warrant return that listed items in the bus that were seized by police.
Epps, 35, and the others were arrested last month by Oklahoma City police when they refused to leave the bus after a traffic stop, authorities said. All 11 were arrested on misdemeanor complaints of obstruction; the rapper was in Oklahoma City for a performance the previous night at the Chesapeake Energy Arena with Lil Wayne.
The search warrant return shows police discovered two .40-caliber semi-automatic pistols along with a partial box of ammunition for the handguns. Twenty shells for the 12-gauge shotgun also were seized.
Police reported discovering the prescription medications hydrocodone and Flexeril but without prescriptions, according to the search warrant return. Officers also reported discovering marijuana residue on the bus, along with metal grinders and smoking papers with marijuana residue. Rolling papers, scales and a tar-like substance having the odor of marijuana also were seized.
The arresting officer reported in documents filed earlier that he smelled marijuana and saw smoke through the open door of the bus after he had stopped and pulled over the bus.
Police pulled the bus over on Interstate 40 at Meridian Avenue just before midnight Aug. 21. The bus was on its way out of town after 2 Chainz opened for Lil Wayne.
Officers said they pulled the bus over because the passenger side taillights were out. Police got to the door of the bus as driver Cedric Brooks, 31, was coming off the bus.
An affidavit filed earlier stated that Brooks shut the door and told officers he was not authorized to allow police on the bus. The officer said the marijuana smell gave him probable cause to search, but Brooks refused to open the door.
When backup officers arrived, police approached the door again and ordered a passenger sitting by the door, Abdullah Mujahid, 52, to open it. He shook his head “no” and held a copy of the U.S. Constitution up in the window, according to a court affidavit.
Police said they also made phone calls to those on the bus, ordering them to come out, but they refused. The bus was towed with the men still aboard to the police training center.
Officers obtained a search warrant and the men got off the bus. They were arrested.
Others arrested were: Rory Smith, 43; Jermaine Simister, 37; Stephen Boykin, 29; Jack Brown, 32; Marshall Sudderth, 26; Robert Jordan, 38; Leon Smith, 36; and Bryan Gathii, 28.
