A week after rap star Drake had his tour bus hit up for $3 million in valuables, new details on how the crime went down have emerged.
According to reports, the tour bus driver believed the suspect was part of Drake’s entourage.
According to court docs … at around 11:15 PM the driver says he saw Travion King board the bus. Travion didn’t ask for permission, so the driver assumed Travion knew the performers. The driver had remained with the bus so he left the tour bus door unlocked. The docs refer to security camera footage of Travion walking toward the parked bus without a briefcase … then 2 minutes later walking away clutching the briefcase containing the bling. (TMZ)
Coincidentally, Drizzy has denied falling victim to a robbery amid widespread coverage.
“Nobody robbed me,” he twice said to a paparazzi videographer when asked how he felt about the jewelry heist. This is technically accurate, since the jewelry was all owned by his DJ Future the Prince, but obviously the videographer was referring to the whole incident happening on his tour and tour bus.

A few days ago, reports claimed law enforcement busted a suspect linked to Drake’s bus getting robbed.
A suspect in connection with the heist was caught just hours later on the campus of Arizona State University, according to TMZ. Travion King, described by police as a transient, was found with a full briefcase of jewels and was charged with felony burglary, according to the gossip site. The 21-year-old has reportedly worked events at the arena in the past, but wasn’t working during Drake’s show on Tuesday night, TMZ reported. (New York Daily News)
Footage had surfaced of Drizzy visibly upset after finding out his bus had millions worth of valuables taken from it.
Drake went ballistic early Wednesday morning after learning one of his tour buses was targeted by thieves, who made off with 2 to 3 million dollars in bling. Drake and Future were performing at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix Tuesday night when a thief or thieves made it onto a bus shared by the 2 rappers.
