Police find hashish on Apple bus

Apple

Singer-songwriter Fiona Apple was arrested on a charge of hashish possession at a West Texas town after a Border Patrol drug-sniffing dog detected marijuana in her tour bus.

Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Rusty Flemming says Apple spent Wednesday night in the county jail and was released Thursday on a $10,000 bond.

Fleming says Apple “had a little tiny amount of pot and hash.”

The Sierra Blanca checkpoint inspects thousands of vehicles daily and sends the town thousands of drug cases yearly. Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and actor Armie Hammer have been arrested in Sierra Blanca on marijuana charges.
