Federal agents reportedly arrested Diddy’s alleged drug and firearms mule, Brendon Paul, during the raid on the rapper’s home, Tuesday.

Paul was reportedly with Diddy at Opa Locka Airport in Miami as law enforcement officials arrived to speak with the star and his entourage, according to TMZ. Diddy’s two homes were simultaneously raided by the Department of Homeland Security during that time. Paul was allegedly booked on two drug charges when federal agents intercepted Diddy’s plane. He has since been charged with one count of possession of suspected cocaine and one charge of possession of suspected marijuana candy, according to TMZ. Both charges are felonies in the state of Florida.

Court documents obtained by TMZ alleged that agents working in conjunction with Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection personnel investigated the belongings of each person and allegedly located what has been described as being suspected drugs inside Paul’s travel bags. It was noted that Paul confirmed the bags were his, according to TMZ.

Law enforcement officials said the suspected narcotics were subsequently tested and were determined to be cocaine and marijuana candy as originally suspected, according to TMZ.

Paul was arrested and taken to jail. He has since made bail and was released.

Rodney Jones previously unleashed a slew of allegations against Diddy and had mentioned Paul by name. He identified Paul as being a close confidant and made bombshell allegations against him, claiming he was the mule who allegedly handled Diddy’s drugs and guns, according to TMZ.

At this stage in the investigation, it is not yet clear if the drugs allegedly found in Paul’s bags were connected to Diddy in any way. (RELATED: Video Shows Diddy Remains Free Amid Rumors He Fled The Country During Homeland Security Probe)
