The rapper’s tour bus was stopped at the Sierra Blanca, Tex., border checkpoint Saturday and was searched after an agent smelled marijuana, according to a statement (found via CNN) from the Hudspeth County sheriff’s office.

A drug-sniffing dog found a prescription bottle “containing rolled marijuana cigarettes” in a trash can. Two additional containers with marijuana inside were found on the bus.

Snoop Dogg, who has a prescription for medical marijuana in California, admitted that the drugs were his, according to the sheriff’s office, and he was arrested. The rapper, born Calvin Broadus, has not made a statement about the incident.

He was cited for possession of drug paraphernalia and is due in court Jan. 20, according to CNN. A Hudspeth justice of the peace told TMZ that Snoop can settle the matter by paying a $537 fine.

Fun fact: This is the same checkpoint where Willie Nelson was busted for possession in 2010. Small world!
