'Pawn Stars' star Austin "Chumlee" Russell arrested on 20 drug and gun charges after police raid

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/10/2016 

Pawn Stars star Austin "Chumlee" Russell was arrested in Las Vegas on felony drug and gun charges.

Russell was taken into custody Wednesday and is facing 19 drug-possession charges as well as one count of possession of a gun by a prohibited person, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

LA Metropolitan police reportedly discovered methamphetamine, marijuana and guns when they were searching his Las Vegas Valley home in connection to a sexual assault investigation. Authorities had obtained a search warrant because of a woman's recent complaint.

Russell, 33, was being held at the Clark County Detention Center on Wednesday night on $62,000 bail, according to the newspaper.

Russell hasn't been charged in the sexual assault case, however, the investigation is ongoing.

Pawn Stars co-star Rick Harrison released the following statement: "We don't have details yet but are here to help Chumlee however we can."

The History channel has yet to comment on Russell's run-in with the law.

Pawn Stars, which chronicles the daily activities at the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, debuted on the History channel in July 2009.
