Police find marijuana in dorm room

A West Virginia Wesleyan College student was arrested after allegedly admitting that he had been selling marijuana.

Jaquan Brock, 21, of Charleston, was arrested last week for possession with intent to deliver marijuana, a felony, according to the criminal complaint in the Upshur County Magistrate Clerk’s office.

Cpl. Darin Hissam and Patrolman Tanner Collins responded to Fleming Hall at the request of college security officers who had discovered a “sizable amount of marijuana during their investigation into a complaint about the smell of marijuana coming from Brock’s room, according to the criminal complaint.

Brock allegedly handed over a large jar half full of marijuana and some packages containing THC extract cartridges. Security officers also discovered a large jar of marijuana and plastic bag containing more THC extract cartridges.

The two jars together contained approximately 115 grams of marijuana, while the TCH cartridges came in 29 one-gram packages and 11 half-gram packages. Additionally, Brock had $1,566 in cash on his person. A small digital scale and box of plastic baggies were also located in the room.

Magistrate Mike Coffman set bond at $25,000 — $20,000 surety and $5,000 personal recognizance. If convicted, Brock faces imprisonment for one to five years and a fine of up to $15,000.
