Drake And Future Tour Bus Robbed, Jewelry Stolen
Drake and Future are currently in the midst of their “Summer Sixteen Tour,” which began in July. They’ve spent the last few days performing shows in New Orleans and Houston, before heading to Phoenix. It was at the city’s Talking Stick Resort Arena that the crime apparently went down.
While the rappers weren’t around, the culprit or culprit allegedly gained access to their shared bus and made off with a briefcase filled with jewelry. The items are said to be worth between $2 and $3 million dollars. And while the goods reportedly belonged to Future, a video taken in the aftermath of the incident shows Drake was quite upset over the incident (see below).
In the footage, which was reportedly filmed early Wednesday morning, Drake is seen gesturing angrily to people seemingly in his entourage. Neither star, however, has mentioned the situation on social media. According to TMZ, police plan to review surveillance footage in hopes of finding the thief or thieves.
Drake and Future’s “Summer Sixteen Tour” is expected to continue as scheduled on Wednesday night with a show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Additional concerts are slated for Friday and Saturday.
UPDATE: A homeless man named Travion King has been arrested for the crime. Police found King at Arizona State University, where he had the briefcase filled with jewelry. King has reportedly worked at previous Talking Stick events, but was not employed for Tuesday night’s concert. He is now facing a felony burglary charge. And, an important clarification: Now it’s being said the jewelry actually belonged to Drake’s deejay, Future The Prince, and not tour mate Future, the rapper.
