Drake jewellery theft suspect arrested

Drake jewellery theft suspect arrested

A suspected of stealing $3 million (£2.2 million) worth of jewellery from Drake's tour bus has been arrested.

The 29-year-old rapper is on the 'Summer Sixteen Tour' with Future and had been performing at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday (06.09.16) when the theft took place.

Arizona State University police arrested a suspect named Travion King in connection to the theft on Wednesday morning (07.09.16), after he was caught trespassing on the college's Tempe campus and was allegedly found with the stolen goods which reportedly belonged to the 'Hotline Bling' hitmaker's DJ, Future the Prince.

According to Phoenix Police, the crime was committed by someone who knew the layout of the venue, as the busses were parked in the lower garage of the structure and weren't visible to the public.

Sergeant Vince Lewis said: "We're talking about somebody who knew the layout or was able to gain access or to get back there unnoticed."

Police later revealed that Travion "had done contract work with local venues in the past".

The news of the arrest comes after the 'Started From The Bottom' rapper - who is in a relationship with Rihanna - announced he plans to open a "classy" strip club in Houston called The Ballet.
