Chadron Police PatchA pair of drug-related search warrant raids on the Chadron State College campus Thursday resulted in one student being arrested and 2 others cited. All three are 19-year olds from Colorado.

Chadron Police Chief Tim Lordino says Austin Waterman was arrested  for  knowingly and intentionally possessing a controlled substance (testosterone) without a medical order while Aloysius Zelney and Weston Salyard were cited for being under the influence of marijuna.

Late Thursday evening, the Chadron Police Department established information, which led to issuance of two drug related search warrants on campus at Chadron State College.

Seized from two dorm rooms and vehicles on campus were less than one ounce of suspected marijuana, multiple vials suspected testosterone, a suspected marijuana pipe, syringes, a drug concealment container, a safe, drug packaging material, and 4 cell phones.

Lordino praises the staff and students at Chadron State College for their help, support, and cooperation in the investigation. “Our cooperative effort makes Chadron State College a safer place for students to acquire a top quality education at an outstanding educational institution.”

The Chadron police were assisted in the case by the Nebraska State Patrol, and the WING Drug Task Force (WING), comprised of investigators from nearly a dozen jurisdictions across the Panhandle.
