4 university students arrested on multiple drug charges

Four students at Rowan University were recently arrested after police raided a campus dorm room. New Jersey police claim to have found a safe containing large amounts of various drugs as well as nearly $30,000 in cash. The four now face serious drug charges and must begin to focus on their criminal defense.

According to the report, police conducted an early morning raid on a campus dormitory apartment with the intention of finding drugs. The report does not say what led officers to the dorm in search of drugs, but nevertheless, a search was conducted. The officers allegedly found a safe full of various drugs and nearly $29,000 in cash.

The safe supposedly contained approximately 100 doses of LSD as well as three-fourths of a pound of the club drug "Molly," which is a variant of MDMA. Officers also say they found under 50 grams of marijuana along with various drug paraphernalia that police suspect was used to package and distribute the drugs. One student was charged with three counts of possession with intent to distribute the drugs in a school-zone. Another student was charged with possession of marijuana and paraphernalia, and the other two students face charges of possession of marijuana.

Each New Jersey student facing these drug charges is only 19 years old. In cases like this one, it can often be difficult to prove which person, if any of those accused, is responsible for which drugs. If prosecutors are unable to present the court with sufficient evidence linking each person with a specific piece of evidence, it is possible that the charges against one or more of the students could be dropped or reduced.
