Residents of UTC Place Try to Lie About Marijuana

Jan. 5, 2010—UTC police responded to drug offense at UTC Place 3000.

Police were walking in the hall of UTC Place 3000 on the third floor when they smelled smoke.  When police entered the apartment, there was a strong odor of marijuana.

Both residents said that they had not been smoking and that their roommate who had left when they got there could have been the one smoking.

After more questioning and investigating, police told the residents that if they began to search the apartment and found any violations, that because they had lied, police would arrest them.

One of the residents then admitted that he had some marijuana and got up to go get it. He handed police a medicine bottle with five grams of marijuana in it. The resident was cited for simple possession.
