FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A Fairfield University student faces drug charges after campus security found 330 grams of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and more than $1,000 cash in his townhouse bedroom early Saturday, police said.
Shortly before 2 a.m., a campus Public Safety officer questioned a group of people on a townhouse deck because he thought he smelled burnt marijuana.
One of the students, Michael Santana, 19, of Bronx, N.Y., handed over some marijuana, glass pipes and a grinder, police said.
Going inside the townhouse, a security officer saw Logan Tassey, 20, of Gorham, N.H., sitting on a bed in his room, where the officer could see a large jar filled with a leafy green substance on a desk, police said.
Tassey admitted the pot and the scale, grinder, rolling papers and baggies that were visible were his, police said.
He also showed them a footlocker containing a safe with more marijuana and $1,000 cash, police said.
Tassey was charged with use and possession of drug paraphernalia, sale of a controlled substance, possession of more than four ounces of marijuana and possession with intent to sell near a school, police said.
He posted $1,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 4.
Santana received an e-ticket for possession of marijuana, police said.
