Police arrested a California man who was traveling with Weiland.

Police in Minnesota say they found cocaine in the bedroom of the tour bus where former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland was found dead.

Police said they found "a small quantity" of cocaine during a search of the bus Friday following Weiland's death.

Investigators say they also found a small amount of cocaine elsewhere in the bus and arrested a California man who was traveling with Weiland. The man hasn't been charged.

Police released no additional information on Weiland's cause of death, saying it would be released by the local coroner.

Weiland's current band, Scott Weiland & the Wildabouts, was scheduled to play at a Medina, Minnesota, concert venue, according to the venue's website. The website showed the event was canceled.

Weiland was dogged by substance abuse problems throughout his career. He was 48 when he died.
