    After the officer talked with the man, a dispatcher informed the officer he had an outstanding felony warrant for his failure to appear in court.

    The officer handcuffed the man and searched him. The man had a pipe with white residue inside in his right front pocket.

    The officer also found two small plastic baggies that had a trace amount of crystal substance inside.

    A man was arrested for possession of marijuana and narcotics paraphernalia at Hopi Residence Hall, 1440 E. Fourth St., at 1:30 a.m. yesterday.

    An officer responded to the roundabout north of the Student Union Memorial Center, 1303 E. University Blvd., to meet with a SafeRide driver who said he found marijuana inside of his van after dropping off some students.

    The driver said he picked up four students at approximately 11:30 p.m. and dropped them off at Highland Market, 525 N. Highland Ave. The driver said he noticed a strong odor of marijuana after they got in the vehicle.

    The odor remained after they exited, and the driver noticed a small backpack on the floor in front of the van’s middle row of seats. Inside, the man located a large quantity of marijuana in a glass jar, as well as a smaller quantity of marijuana in a plastic baggie.

    The officer inspected the backpack and also found an iPod and a small orange scale. By looking into the details section of the iPod, the officer learned that it belonged to a resident of Hopi.

    When officer arrived, the resident allowed the officer to enter his room. He matched the description of the one of the men the driver described.

    The resident was on edge and seemed nervous. The officer asked him if he had lost his backpack, and he said he had. He also said that everything in the backpack belonged to him.

    He said he did not sell marijuana, and that the marijuana and scale were for his personal use.

    The resident was cited and released.
