Homeless Man Arrested for Stealing $3 Million of Jewelry From Drake’s Tour Bus
Earlier today (Sept. 7), we reported that Drake's DJ Future the Prince had been robbed of millions of dollars worth of jewelry from his tour bus last night in Phoenix. Now, a suspect has been arrested for the crime, and you can see his picture above.
His name is Travion King, according to TMZ, and cops describe him as a transient. He was arrested this afternoon on the campus of Arizona State University with a briefcase containing the stolen jewelry.
The jewels were lifted from Drake's tour bus outside the Talking Stick Arena in downtown Phoenix while Aubrey was performing at his Summer Sixteen tour.
TMZ reports that King has worked at the Talking Stick Arena for concerts in the past, but wasn't working last night.
Robbery aside, there's some good news for Drake fans today courtesy of Kanye West. After a mysterious billboard popped up that had the G.O.O.D. Music logo and OVO insignia stamped on it, Kanye has confirmed that he is in fact working on an album with Aubrey. “We’re just working on music, working on a bunch of music together, just having fun going into the studio,” said Kanye in an interview with Vogue that ran prior to his Yeezy Season 4 show today. “We’re working on an album, so there’s some exciting things coming up soon.”
Below you can see footage of Drake having a fit after learning that his DJ was robbed.
The Phoenix Police Department has released a statement regarding the suspect, saying the stolen property has been recovered. Read that below as well.
An arrest has been made in this case. 21 year old Travion King has been arrested and charged with the theft from 201 E Jefferson Street. The property has been recovered as well and officers will be working with the victim to account for the items reported stolen. Surveillance footage assisted with identifying King who has done contract work with local venues in the past. King was arrested early this morning by Arizona State University Police in Tempe, AZ, for one count of trespassing on their Tempe Main Campus. He was booked into Maricopa County Fourth Avenue Jail on the trespassing charge until Phoenix Police discovered his whereabouts at the jail. He is in the process of being re-booked into jail on the new charges.
