Police blotter March 25

Follow your nose

A WSU officer was dispatched on March 18 around 8 p.m. to respond to a potential drug violation at University Village. The officer made contact with a resident of the dorm where the smell had been reported, and he reported an odor that could have been the smell of marijuana smoke.

The officer asked permission to check the dorm, and the individual permitted the search. There were no illegal substances in the room, but the officer did find alcohol, which was a violation of university policy. The officer attempted to find the origin of the smell by walking to other dorm rooms but did not find any marijuana. The officer then advised the parties of the consequences of smoking marijuana on campus.
