COLUMBIA — An MU freshman was arrested Friday night in Wolpers Hall on suspicion of marijuana sales.

MU Police responded to a report of an odor of marijuana and received permission from Tyler S. Degenhardt, 18, to search his room, MU Police Capt. Brian Weimer said.

Weimer said officers found individually packaged marijuana and three cans of beer in Degenhardt's room.

Degenhardt was charged with possession of a controlled substance, use or possession of drug paraphernalia, reproduced or altered identification, drug sale at a school and a liquor law violation. His total bail was set at $5,800 for the first four charges. Bail had not been set Saturday morning for the liquor law violation.
