Pinky problem

A friendly game of basketball turned into a call to Public Safety on Feb. 10.
At 7:38 p.m., a female student reported to Public Safety that a student had been injured while playing basketball in the Student Recreation Center.

Officers met with the hurt student, who said he collided with another student while playing in the gym and he dislocated his pinky finger. Public Safety recommended that the student go to the hospital. The student agreed, and an ambulance was contacted. The student was transported to the hospital for further evaluation.

Drug bust

A total of six students were arrested by the Lawrence Township Police Department (LTPD) after suspected marijuana was found in a room in Ziegler Hall.

On Feb. 8 at about midnight, Public Safety reported to Ziegler after receiving a call about a suspicious smell. The officers met with a male staff member, who said that there was a strong scent of the illegal substance in the building.

Public Safety was able to narrow down the smell to one room. The officers knocked on the door and were greeted by six resident students, all of whom denied smoking marijuana. Based on the strong smell, Public Safety received authorization to search the room.

Following a search of the room, officers located plastic baggies with remains of suspected marijuana, three bongs, a pipe and rolling paper. Public Safety then notified the LTPD and all the students were placed under arrest.

Public Safety would like to remind students that it is illegal to possess or use marijuana in New Jersey. Resident Advisers and Public Safety conduct walk throughs of all the buildings and any suspected paraphernalia found will be reported to the police.
