Stranger Things actor Charlie Heaton has allegedly been caught with cocaine at a US Airport.

The British actor had flown from London to Los Angeles for the show’s season two launch party but was allegedly caught by sniffer dogs at LAX.

Border officials allegedly found traces of white powder on his personal belongings.

Heaton was sent back to the UK after the discovery, forcing him to miss the premiere.

A source told the UK paper The Sun that Heaton wasn’t charged but couldn’t stay in the country.

“He was not arrested. He was held at the airport for a while and then put back on a plane to London that night. If you are a foreign national and it is a large amount of drugs you may be charged,” the source said.

“But if it is personal use, the consequences are that you will not be allowed in to the country. US law is very strict on this.”

Heaton plays Jonathan Byers in the highly popular Netflix series.
