University Students arrested for drug possession
Two University students were arrested on drug charges Friday after Rutgers University Police raided their room in a College Avenue residence hall as result of a search warrant.
School of Arts and Sciences first-year student Keith Karol and Rutgers Business School first-year student William McCaw were incarcerated in the Middlesex County Adult Correctional Facility, said RUPD Lt. Richard Dinan.
Karol, 19 of Bridgewater, N.J., faces two charges for marijuana and cocaine possession with intent to distribute, Dinan said. He was released on $50,000 bail.
McCaw, 19 of Brielle, N.J., was charged with possession of marijuana as well as possession of paraphernalia. He was released on his own recognizance.
While specific amounts could not be disclosed, authorities found between half an ounce and 5 ounces of cocaine and less than 50 grams of marijuana.
The case has been referred to the Office of Judicial Affairs, Dinan said.
