ALLIANCE, Ohio -- An undercover investigation led to the arrest of five adult teens in connection with a campus marijuana operation at the University of Mount Union Wednesday.

Police executed a search warrant following a two-week investigation into drug sales on the university campus.

The five teens arrested were Victor Schade, 18, of McCready Hall; Blake Miller, 18, of McCready Hall; Travis Infield, 19, of McCready Hall; Jonathan Delapa, 18, of McCready Hall; and Wyatt Grindley, 18, of Cunningham Hall.

The search of Schade's room turned up marijuana packaged for sale, cash, loose marijuana and alcohol. Shade was charged with trafficking marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and underage possession of alcohol.

Upon further investigation, detectives were led to additional rooms on campus, as well as a car owned by one of the students.

Miller was charged with trafficking marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

Infield, Miller's roommate, was arrested for complicity in the marijuana trafficking.

Delapa was charged with trafficking marijuana, possession of dangerous drugs -- diazepam pills (known by the brand name Valium) -- possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

Grindley was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. He became ill while police interviewed him and was taken to Alliance Community Hospital where he was treated and released.

The others were taken to Stark County Jail on their felony charges. They will be arraigned in Alliance Municipal Court Friday.

The trafficking and complicity charges were elevated to fourth degree felonies because the marijuana sales happened at a school.
