Charges have been filed against Nittany Lions Abe Koroma and Maurice Evans in connection with a Sept. 2 marijuana seizure at a Nittany Apartments residence, according to court documents filed today.
Koroma and Evans have been charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana, an ungraded misdemeanor, according to the criminal complaint.
Penn State spokeswoman Lisa Powers confirmed Judge Carmine Prestia signed the charges at about 2 p.m. today.
"The charges filed against these two individuals are based on evidence that was collected and information that was obtained through interviews with anyone who would have been in the apartment or anyone connected in any way to the incident," Powers said. "Police did a very thorough investigation, and that's what they based their charges on."
A "small amount" of marijuana was found in apartment 5204 after Penn State Police responded Sept 2. to a report of loud music, police said.
Prestia authorized a search of the apartment at 10:59 that night after police reported a strong smell of marijuana permeating the residence, according to the search warrant.
According to the search warrant, which cites university housing records, football players Abe Koroma, Maurice Evans, Andrew Quarless and A.J. Wallace live in the apartment.
