    Police find marijuana in dorm

    An officer responded to a report of the smell of marijuana coming from a room in the Pueblo de la Cienega Residence Hall. When police knocked on the door, a student opened and said it was all right for the officers to enter. The officer informed the student that he was there to discuss why there was a strong odor of marijuana coming from the room, and the student responded that he did not know what the officer was talking about.

    When the officer asked if he could search the room, the student responded, “”Yeah, go ahead. I ain’t got nothing to hide.”” The officers located a backpack under the student’s bed that contained two baggies of marijuana, a digital scale and a glass pipe with what appeared to be marijuana residue. The officers read the student his Miranda Rights.

    They asked what the scale was for and the student replied, “”I don’t know.”” When asked to whom he was selling the marijuana, the student put the palms of his hands on his eyes and asked if he could call his mom.

    When asked if he was selling marijuana, the student replied “”no”” and said he did not want to answer any more questions. The student was handcuffed and taken to Pima County Jail, where he was booked for possession of marijuana for sale under two pounds. The marijuana and paraphernalia were placed into evidence.
