2 UNL students face drug allegations

  • 0

University of Nebraska-Lincoln police arrested two students Monday on allegations they were selling Ritalin and marijuana out of their campus dorm room.

Jacob Campbell of Omaha and James Purcell of Elkhorn, both 19, were booked into jail on suspicion of possession with intent to deliver and since have posted $10,000 percentage bonds.

Prosecutors have not yet filed charges, but the two are set to return to court Wednesday.

In court records filed Tuesday, UNL police say they were called to a room on the eighth floor of Abel Hall about the odor of burnt marijuana.

They petitioned for a search warrant, and while serving it, officers say they found Ritalin and individual packages of marijuana. Ritalin is commonly used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

UNL police think the two got the Ritalin in December and had been selling the pills for about $6 each.

According to WebMD, the prescription drug is a mild stimulant that works by affecting the levels of chemicals, or neurotransmitters, in the nervous system.
