Drugs found on Justin Bieber's tour bus in Sweden

Swedish police said Thursday they had found a "small amount" of drugs on Canadian pop star Justin Bieber's tour bus while he was performing in Stockholm.

"We conducted a search of Justin Bieber's bus and found a small amount of drugs," Stockholm police spokesman Lars Bystroem told AFP.

Police made the find around 8 pm on Wednesday evening during a raid of the empty bus, which was parked outside the Globen arena, where the 19-year-old singer was performing.

The officers in charge of security around the Grand Hotel where Bieber was staying reported a strong odour of marijuana wafting from the bus before the singer and his entourage left for the concert venue.

They then contacted the Stockholm police drug squad, Bystroem said.
