Last week, one of America’s favorite idiots, Austin Lee Russell, AKA “Chumlee,” was arrested after a search warrant was executed on his Las Vegas home. Originally it was thought he just had a few guns, but the list of contraband is much longer, and much worse, than previously reported.
Initially, police went to Russell’s home to execute a search warrant for sexual assault, and the subsequent search of his home turned up some contraband, but it wasn’t clear what exactly was found… until now. TMZ reported that there’s a laundry list of illegal substances and firearms that were recovered, and apparently Chumlee even had a stripper pole.
Here’s the list of contraband that was discovered:
1 gallon Ziploc with 116 grams (1/4 pound) of marijuana
2 clear jars of marijuana (8.2 grams and 2.8 grams)
1 bag with 4.4 grams marijuana
7 clear capsules with 1.7 grams of methamphetamine powder
17 Xanax bars
8 unregistered firearms
TMZ also reported that Chumlee admitted to police that he smokes “a lot of weed,” but swears that he’s not a drug dealer – he buys in bulk because it’s more convenient. When police searched the “Chum Chum” room, which houses its own stripper pole, they found cocaine residue inside clear plastic baggies and a rolled up dollar bill with the same residue.
