Tech police confiscate drugs and alcohol

A Tech police case involving a group of underage students accused of possessing marijuana and alcohol has been forwarded to the dean of students.

When Lt. Fred Nichols entered the room he saw Journey Hargrove lying on the bathroom floor after throwing up. Another student in the room, Madeline Wardlaw, told Tech police Hargrove was drunk, according to the police report.

Tech police were called to the room when a resident assistant reported smelling marijuana and asked the resident permission to search the room. Nichols found a small plastic bag on the bathroom counter containing pieces of what police believed to be marijuana and an empty bottle of vodka.

Hargrove reportedly declined medical assistance and Tech police confiscated the drugs and alcohol.
