PHOENIX (AP) — "Hotline Bling" rapper Drake saw the safe return of millions of dollars' worth of actual bling stolen from his tour bus.

Phoenix police recovered a reported $3 million worth of jewelry that was taken from a tour bus being used by the musician and DJ Future the Prince while they were performing Tuesday.

Travion King, 21, was booked into Maricopa County Jail on a burglary charge.

Police say they identified King as the suspect through surveillance footage at Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix.

They then learned that he was already in jail after being arrested for trespassing Wednesday morning by campus police at Arizona State University in nearby Tempe.

The stolen jewelry was subsequently found.

Sgt. Vince Lewis says the suspect has done contract work in the past with local venues including the arena.

The theft was reported after a Tuesday night concert. According to police, the suspect had removed a briefcase containing the jewelry within a 15-minute window.

Lewis did not say who owned the jewelry, but confirmed it did not belong to Drake.

Representatives for Drake did not immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday. A representative for Future the Prince declined comment on the theft case.

Drake has been co-headlining his "Summer Sixteen" concert tour with fellow rapper Future. Future the Prince is Drake's official DJ.

The tour, which began in mid-July, includes stops all over the U.S. and in Drake's home country of Canada.

One of the most recognizable rappers for hits such as "Hotline Bling" and albums such as "Nothing Was the Same." His latest album, "Views," was released last spring.

Future the Prince is also a producer who has worked on records for several musicians including Adele.
