Cops: Drugs found in Migos SUV, 2 metro Atlanta men charged

Clarification: Boone police said the vehicle stopped was an SUV.

North Carolina cops said they followed their noses to the SUV of Gwinnett County rap group Migos and found multiple types of drugs on board.

Three men, none of them members of the popular rap group, were charged with drug possession Thursday night, according to a news release from the Boone Police Department.

The officers “detected an obvious odor of marijuana coming from the band’s vehicle” as it left the venue at Appalachian State University where Migos had just performed, the news release said.
