Two Belmont freshmen were arrested for possession of just under 2 ounces of marijuana late Sunday night, according to Metro Police.
Adam Fisher and Brian Frueh, both 18-year-olds from Colorado, were detained after a resident assistant at Maddox Hall smelled the “strong odor of marijuana coming down the hall” and notified two resident directors who then keyed into the dorm, according to police affidavits.
Metro officers were called to the scene after a small amount of marijuana was found in plain sight on a desk. The suspects informed Belmont officials that a thermos contained the rest of the 55.9 grams they had.
Fisher reportedly told the arresting officers that the marijuana was for personal use only.
Both Fisher and Frueh were charged with possession with intent to sell/deliver/manufacture, a felony offense and were released on bond. Their court appearance has been set for Sept. 4.
