EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Singer-songwriter Fiona Apple has been arrested for hashish possession at a West Texas town after a Border Patrol drug-sniffing dog detected marijuana in her tour bus.

Hudspeth County sheriff’s office spokesman Rusty Flemming says Apple spent Wednesday night in the county jail and was released Thursday on a $10,000 bond.

Fleming says Apple “had a little tiny amount of pot and hash.” Fleming says marijuana possession in small amounts is a misdemeanor, while hashish in any quantity is a felony in Texas.

Apple’s publicist, Ambrosia Healy, didn’t immediately respond to an email request for comment.

The Sierra Blanca checkpoint inspects thousands of vehicles daily and sends the town thousands of drug cases yearly. Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and actor Armand Hammer have been arrested in Sierra Blanca on marijuana charges.
