Steamboat Springs A 19-year-old Colorado Mountain College student was arrested Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of selling marijuana after police found about 25 grams of marijuana in his possession.
Police Capt. Joel Rae said Anthony Baca admitted to selling marijuana after a college resident advisor found the drugs in another student's dorm room.
The other student, Susan Singleton, 18, was cited for possessing less than 1 ounce of marijuana.
During a search of the room, police reportedly found five sandwich bags containing between 4.1 and 6.1 grams of marijuana each, a black digital scale, a box of sandwich bags and other drug paraphernalia.
Baca reportedly told police the marijuana was his and that he was selling it. Baca now is facing charges of felony possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute it.
The resident advisor contacted the students after she smelled marijuana and asked to enter the student's room. After finding the drugs, the RA called police.
Police said the college students were cooperative during the incident.
