Justin Bieber: Swedish Police Raid Tour Bus, Discover Drugs And Stun Gun

Justin Bieber’s Grand Tour of Europe continues apace. The latest incident to hit the teen star’s Believe tour reportedly includes the discovery of pot and a taser on the Canadian’s tour bus.

According to TMZ, local police in Stockholm, Sweden, officers smelled weed on Bieber’s tour bus while it was parked in front of the city’s Grand Hotel on April 24, Wednesday.

Officers provided additional security for the 19-year-old as he exited the hotel to travel to each of his three concerts at Stockhom’s Ericsson Globe Arena. The singer played his final show on Wednesday.

As he was left the hotel to get on the tour bus, Bieber and his friend, Little Za, a rapper, put on an impromptu dance show while wearing onesies, for screaming fans waiting outside the hotel.

Police spokesman Lars Byström confirmed to the local AftonBladet newspaper that officers were suspicious about a “strong smell of marijuana” coming from Bieber’s tour bus.

Byström said the drug squad were alerted after the tour party left for the Arena and a search of the empty bus took place at the Ericsson Globe Arena about 30 minutes before Bieber took to the stage.

The officer stressed that they have no suspects — as the bus was empty — and that no one has been arrested.

Bystrom declined to identify the drug, but said it had been sent to a laboratory for analysis.

However, he confirmed that a “small amount of narcotics” had been confiscated and that a “stun gun requiring a permit was also found on the bus.”

“We don’t have any concrete suspicions against any specific person – there were several people on the bus,” Byström told Aftonbladet.

In addition, Varg Jyllander, also a Swedish police spokesman, told Sky Newsit may take several days to find out exactly what substance was found on the tour bus as testing the drugs is not considered — in his words — “a high priority.”

It’s believed around 10 passengers were on the tour bus, including Bieber.

Jyllander confirmed to Sky: “They found a small amount of drugs and a stun gun.”

He added: “Now the drugs are sent over to the forensics lab and before we have the analysis results we won’t [comment further]. It was a short search for around half an hour.”

“There is no suspect at the moment. The crew left and took the bus, but the investigation is still going on. It was a small stun gun and in this country you need a permit to carry one or have one and they hadn’t.”

Jyllander added that the singer and his crew were free to leave the country.

During his 125-date Believe world tour, Bieber has encountered a series of PR missteps along the way.

These include a late show at London’s 02 Arena, a run-in with a Brit paparazzo, the quarantining of his monkey by Munich customs officials after he attempted to bring a baby capuchin into the country without necessary paperwork, and a social media backlash after a guestbook comment Bieber left at the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam.

In addition, the 19-year-old is being investigated by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department over ongoing battery allegations.

Bieber is expected in Finland for a scheduled concert on Friday.
