A Chicago rapper was arrested after a cache of drugs was allegedly found in his luggage Saturday morning at Washington Dulles International Airport.

Vic Mensa, 28, arrived about 7 a.m. on a flight that had departed from Ghana, according to a statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

During a secondary baggage examination, customs officers said they found about 41 grams of liquid LSD, about 124 grams of Psilocybin capsules, 178 grams of Psilocybin gummies and six grams of Psilocybin mushrooms concealed inside Mensa’s luggage.

Airport police responded and took Mensa - whose legal name is Victor Kwesi Mensah - into custody on felony narcotics possession charges, officials said.
