On Wednesday, March 23 at 2:15 a.m., Campus Police was dispatched to the fifth floor of Travers Hall to investigate the reported odor of marijuana.

Upon arrival, officers met with the fifth-floor Community Advisor (CA) who said she smelled marijuana coming from a room. Officers knocked on the room door, which was answered by a male resident of the room. Officers noticed a smell of burnt marijuana emanating from the room.

The student gave officers permission to enter, at which time they found two other male students present in the room. The officers asked the students if they had been smoking marijuana, and they answered that they had not.

A subsequent search revealed five 12-ounce containers of beer. An officer also searched the area below the window of the room and found a cigarette containing a green leafy substance resembling marijuana on the roof below the room.

When asked about the cigarette, the students denied throwing it out the window.

The officers asked the students to empty the beer into the sink and dispose of the containers. The evidence was then transported to Campus Police headquarters and placed in the evidence locker. A report of the incident was referred to the Office of Residence Life.

There is no further information at this time.
