WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University police on Tuesday (Feb. 16) arrested a student on drug charges.
Daniel M. Greenhill, 19, a freshman in the College of Engineering from Highland Park, Ill., faces preliminary charges of possession of a narcotic drug and possession of a Schedule II narcotic. Both are Class D felonies, punishable by a maximum of three years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
Acting on a tip, police received a warrant to search Greenhill’s fourth-floor Hillenbrand Hall room around 6:30 p.m., said Lt. Fred Davis. Officers found more than 23 grams of psilocybin mushrooms in the room and seven pills thought to be Adderall that Greenhill was allegedly carrying, Davis said.
Adderall is a Schedule II narcotic, which is legally defined as having a high abuse risk but also has safe and accepted medical uses, usually prescribed to those diagnosed with ADD or ADHD.
