BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A 23-year-old man from Kansas was arrested Monday after he was found in possession of drugs and a gun on Southern University's campus.

According to the Probable Cause report, a deputy with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office was on campus to participate in a program that investigates illegal narcotics activity. A confidential informant told the deputy a guy known only as "Dope Man" was selling a large quantity of marijuana on campus.

The informant described the man and his vehicle. The deputy later located the suspected vehicle near the dorms.

The deputy approached the driver of the vehicle, Drew Bey. When he did, the deputy allegedly immediately smelled the strong odor of raw marijuana and then read Bey his rights.

"Mr. Bey agreed to speak to detectives without the presence of his attorney," the deputy noted in the report. "I asked Mr. Bey if he had any marijuana in the vehicle, at which time I observed Mr. Bey to look down at his feet as if he was defeated and stated, ‘Yes!'"

A total of 44 grams of marijuana was allegedly recovered from the vehicle. The deputy also located a 9mm semi-automatic pistol.

Bey was arrested and charged with possession with the intent to distribute marijuana, possession of marijuana (second offense), possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance in a drug free zone. All of the charges are listed as felonies. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
