Crime Reports

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.
