FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) – Police at Northern Arizona University are investigating a student who they suspect of selling cocaine on campus.
University police arrested 18-year-old Francisco Curiel last month on suspicion of narcotics sales and possession of drug paraphernalia. Authorities say they were tipped off by one of his roommates.
Curiel has not been charged formally with a crime.
NAU spokeswoman Cindy Brown said Friday that police are awaiting lab results.
A search of Curiel’s dorm turned up two bags of white powder, and plastic tubes and straws that police suspect had cocaine residue.
A police report says Curiel got drugs from friends in Tucson who worked with cartel members.
Curiel was released from jail on his own recognizance.
It’s unclear whether he has an attorney. A phone listing for Curiel couldn’t immediately be found.
This story has been corrected to show that only one student was arrested on suspicion of selling drugs.
