JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police arrested two people, including a rapper who was scheduled to perform at The Diamond Grill, after a traffic stop yielded marijuana and pills.

According to a probable cause affidavit, a Ford Expedition pulled up next to a police officer, who was in a parking lot at the corner of Airport Road and Nettleton Avenue, asking how to get to Airport Road.

The officer said he smelled a strong marijuana odor coming from the vehicle as they pulled away so he stopped the vehicle.

During a search of the vehicle, the officer found a red and black duffle bag that contained a “Runtz” edible marijuana bag. Inside that big was two grams of marijuana.

An Icebreakers mint container inside the duffle bag also contained several amphetamine pills, ecstasy, oxycodone, and Xanax.

Sergio Kitchens, whose stage name is Gunna, told the officer the duffle bag belonged to him.

Another man, Taurus Currie, said the pills inside the bag was his.

Both Kitchens and Currie were taken into custody and taken to the Craighead County Detention Center.

Kitchens and Currie appeared for a probable cause hearing on Monday where the judge charged them both with felony possession of a schedule I or II not meth or cocaine less than two grams, misdemeanor possession of a schedule IV or V less than 28 grams, and misdemeanor possession of a schedule IV less the 4 ounces.

Both were given a $2,500 cash/surety bond.
