According to TMZ, the Federal Bureau of Investigation allegedly searched the late rapper's private jet and seized 70 pounds of marijuana from multiple suitcases found on board. The Chicago-area rapper, whose real name is Jarad A. Higgins, was pronounced dead Sunday, Dec. 8 after a "medical emergency" at Chicago's Midway International Airport, according to authorities.

The cause of death for rapper and singer Juice WRLD is still pending following an autopsy. The FBI confiscated the bags of weed from several suitcases. Police asked the rapper's girlfriend, who was on the flight, whether he had any medical conditions, and replied that he "takes Percocet and has a drug problem".

The search turned up 41 "vacuum-sealed" bags of marijuana, six bottles of prescription codeine cough syrup, two 9 mm pistols, a.40-caliber pistol, a high-capacity ammunition magazine and metal-piercing bullets, police told the paper, although no drug charges have been filed.

It's unclear if the drugs played a role in his death.

"The Medical Examiner's Office has been notified of the death of Jarad A. Higgins, a 21-year-old black male of the 18500 block of Pierce Terrace in Homewood Illinois", Natalia Derevyanny, spokeswoman for the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office said in an email.

"Bae I'm sorry I be tweaking, you've put up with more than ppl know I know I be scaring you, f-k Codeine I'm done", he wrote in June. "I love you and im letting it be known publicly that ain't shit fucking up the real love I found". Learn from this everyone. "Addiction kills all but you can overcome".

According to reports, Long was released after posting a $1,500 bond, while Dean was released without bond.
