Student charged with possession, intent

At 1 a.m. Aug. 20, while performing a routine bicycle patrol, a Duke police officer detected an odor consistent with that of marijuana in the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity section. She entered the dorm and went to the room on the first floor where the smell was coming from. She entered the room, which was occupied by four students. Subsequent investigation led to the confiscation of 10 containers of various amounts of marijuana, ranging in prices of $50 and $100, two glass jars with marijuana residue, one pipe, a small aluminum foil containing opium and a pill bottle labeled "Dutch Ecstasy" containing a green leafy substance. The smoke detector in the room had been removed from the ceiling with the battery taken out.

Kevin Josh Neveloff was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of opium. He was placed under a $5,000 secured bond. The other three students in the room were not charged. Neveloff could not be reached for comment.

Car, man on bicycle collide

A Chapel Hill man riding a bicycle down Duke University Road toward N.C. 751 hit a car driven by a Duke student turning left from Towerview Drive onto Duke University Road Monday afternoon.

Sophomore Paul Jameson, the car's driver, told Durham police that he was obstructed by a Duke police car stationed at the entrance of Towerview Road and could not see the biker coming.

The man struck the rear driver's side of the vehicle, and flipped over the trunk. He was transported to Duke Hospital and later released.

Jameson was charged with failure to yield the right of way and declined further comment.
