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.
