MPD arrests student in Kogan for drug possession

A GW student was arrested last week after University Police Department officers responded to reports of a group of males smoking marijuana in Kogan Plaza.

UPD officers discovered a “pungent odor in the vicinity” of three male students on Thursday at 2:27 a.m., UPD Chief Dolores Stafford said in an e-mail. The officers were responding to an anonymous report.

One student was found to be in possession of a clear Ziplock bag containing five smaller Ziplock bags. All of the bags contained a green leaf-like substance that tested positive for marijuana in a color reaction test performed on the scene, according to a Metropolitan Police report. The report did not specify how much marijuana the bags contained nor did it give the name of the student.

The student who possessed the drugs, which were found in his front pants pocket, was arrested.
