Phoenix police have recovered US$3 million (NZ$4m) in jewellery that was taken from a tour bus used by rapper Drake, and a suspect is in custody.

Authorities say 21-year-old Travion King was in the process of being booked on charges related to the burglary.

Sgt Vince Lewis says investigators identified King through surveillance footage.

They then learned that he was already in jail after being arrested for trespassing earlier in the day by campus police at Arizona State University in Tempe.

Police say a briefcase containing the jewellery went missing from the tour bus while Drake was performing at Talking Stick Resort Arena in downtown Phoenix with DJ Future the Prince and rapper Future.

Police say the suspect has done contract work with local venues including the arena in the past.

Lewis did not say who owned the jewellery, but he confirmed it did not belong to Drake.
