The following information is according to reports from the UNF Police Department.

A UNF student was caught with marijuana and paraphernalia at Osprey Hall on the night of Feb. 12.

Two officers arrived at the Hall after receiving a call from someone about the smell of burning marijuana coming from a dorm room. The officers noticed the smell outside the door. After receiving permission to enter, the smell became stronger.

When the officers asked about the smell, the student said he recently smoked marijuana in the room. The officers asked if he had more marijuana in the room, and he said he did. He showed the officers a piece of wax paper with hash oil on it and a black vapor pen with residue. The student claimed the items as his own.

The reporting officer recommended the student be referred to Student Conduct.
