Three men have been charged with drug possession in Boone, North Carolina after police said they found drugs on a tour bus for rap group Migos following a concert Thursday night.

According to the police department’s press release, Boone Police officers working the group’s concert at the Holmes Convocation Center on the campus of Appalachian State University “detected an obvious odor of marijuana coming from the band’s vehicle as they left the venue,” around 10:25 p.m.

Migos, a trio of artists from Lawrenceville, recently had band member Quavo host “Huncho Day”— a charity flag football game at Berkmar High School on April 1 and are currently on their 2018 tour following the release of “Culture II,” the group’s third studio album.

Police stopped the bus on North Carolina Highway 105 and searched the vehicle. Boone police took one man into custody and issued the two other men with citations after finding 420 grams of marijuana, 26 ounces of codeine and Xanax on the bus.

Jharon Ahmad Murphy, 26 of Snellville, was charged with felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell or deliver, as well as misdemeanor possession of codeine. Daryl Irvon McPherson, 25, of Cleveland, Ohio was cited for simple possession of marijuana and codeine, and 26-year-old Dominic Kevin Spigner of Smyrna, Georgia, was cited for misdemeanor possession of Xanax.

Police said Murphy has a secured bond of $5,000 pending an appearance in the Watauga District Court on May 29.

None of the men charged are members of the rap group.
