22-year-old Trenton Jones was found with weed and paraphernalia by his apartment’s resident directors on August 30th. Police arrive at Tennessee State University’s NRC apartments to speak with the directors, Mr. Wynn and Ms. Lewis. They told police that they walked by Trenton’s apartment and smelled marijuana. They conducted a room inspection where they smelled marijuana emanating in front of Trenton’s room. Inside that room, they found 26 ounces of marijuana, a grinder, zip lock bags, black bags, multiple lighters, rolling papers, and a bong. This was enough to determine, reportedly, that Trenton was selling marijuana to other students. Trenton accepted ownership of all the items found in the room and confessed to selling drugs to other students.
