Drug bust

The University Police arrived on scene in response to a complaint from a resident assistant about a room that smelled of marijuana at about 10:45 p.m. in Murray Hall, according to the report.

When the officer knocked on the door to the room, he heard movement and something being sprayed inside. He knocked several more times until a subject answered the door then closed it behind him. The scent of marijuana became more apparent when the door was opened.

The suspect apologized and stated he was sleeping. His eyes were bloodshot, according to the report.

The officer asked the subject if he could speak with him inside, to which the subject said no. After explaining he wanted all the drugs from his room, the subject agreed.

The subject went back inside and cracked the door open behind him. The police watched him remove a plastic bag from the top of his desk drawer and empty something into the bag.

The subject returned to the door and handed over the plastic bag with cannabis inside. Then he entered back into the room and retrieved his grinder and pipe as well.
