The resident took full responsibility for the drugs over another suspect present in the room and was given a Notice to Appear in court. Both students were referred to the Student Conduct Office.March 6 Marijuana Found in a Dumpster (Osprey Crossings) –

UPD responded to a call from a UNF Housing Employee about a box containing fourteen one gallon bags full of what appeared to be marijuana mixed with another substance. The box was found in a dumpster outside building S of the UNF Crossings. The contents of the box weighed 10.10 pounds. Two of the bags tested positive for marijuana.
