MU students Brandon Federighi and Giorgio Nicholas Gregoris were both arrested in connection with possession of drug paraphernalia and suspicion of distributing a controlled substance near the university campus.

Federighi, 18, was arrested Wednesday on the top level of Parking Structure No. 7 between Hospital and Monk drives, said MU Police Department Chief Jack Watring. He was in possession of 143 grams of marijuana, Watring said.

In the Boone County Sheriff's Department report, Federighi's address is listed as 1100 E. Rollins St., the location for Johnston Hall.

Federighi told authorities Gregoris, 22, was selling drugs out of his apartment, Watring said. MU police issued a search warrant for Gregoris and arrested him Thursday in Apartment A, 1515 Bouchelle Ave.

Gregoris had less than 35 grams of marijuana at his residence, but authorities found drug paraphernalia, including scales and other products for bagging and selling marijuana, Watring said. Police also found a large amount of money assumed to be related to drug dealing, he said.

Both Federighi and Gregoris have since posted bond at the Boone County Jail. Bail was set at $10,000 for Federighi and $7,500 for Gregoris.

Well, I wonder if this is what education can do for your future aspirations or just a coincidence.
