Two UAPD officers responded to a report of a drunk student in a hallway. The student was found hovering over a drinking fountain where he had been vomiting.

Honesty is the best policy

A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia on Nov. 26 at 11:01 p.m.

A UAPD officer met with a resident assistant in Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall in reference to a smell of marijuana coming from one of the dorm rooms, the resident of the room however, was in another room across the hall.

The officer found the student and asked to speak with her in her room.

The student asked the officer if being honest would benefit her before agreeing to let the officer into her room. Once inside her room, the student handed the officer a small Ziploc bag with gold skulls that had marijuana inside.

The student said she buys marijuana from another student on campus and regularly smokes it with her friend, adding that she usually replaces the tobacco in Swisher Sweets cigars with marijuana.

She said there weren’t any other drug-related items in the room, but the officer found a small cigar that looked like it had marijuana in it.

Because the student was 17 years old, the officer contacted her father. The student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office and the bag of marijuana and the cigar were submitted to UAPD evidence.
