A smoking gun

Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) officers at 1:21 a.m. on Nov. 3 saw three male students by the side of Lane Hall. When the officers approached, they smelled marijuana and saw one of the individuals throw a metal object over the railing.

The officers retrieved the item, which turned out to be a marijuana grinder with marijuana in it. They also found a bag that contained a bong with smoke still inside the chamber. The students all denied ownership. TUPD confiscated and destroyed all of the items and sent a report to the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs.

Innocent bystanders

TUPD at 11:45 p.m. on Nov. 6 received a call about a loud party taking place in Hillside Apartments. Officers reporting to the scene found loud music, underage drinking and a beer pong game set up. One of the residents stated that some of the alcohol was his, but that he had not given it to any of the underage attendees.

“What do you think?” TUPD Sgt. Robert McCarthy said. TUPD broke up the party and confiscated the unclaimed alcohol.

Please recycle this Daily

TUPD officers at 10:15 p.m. on Nov. 7 reported to a South Hall dorm room in response to reports of a strong odor of marijuana. When the residents opened the door, officers saw a marijuana vaporizer machine with an attached hose that had burnt marijuana residue in it. Officers also found an old issue of the Daily rolled with “something white” in it, according to McCarthy.

“They recycle; let’s put it that way,” he said.

The students turned over three small plastic bags to TUPD officers.
