Elon student Taylor Zachary was arrested Thursday after Burlington Police officers searched his apartment for drugs.
Burlington Police and federal agents with the Department Enforcement Agency executed a search warrant on Zachary’s apartment at The Glenns located at 2434 W. Webb Avenue in Burlington.
Burlington Police found more than four pounds of marijuana and various drug paraphernalia.
A total of five people– including Zachary and Elon junior David Brenner– were charged. The other three were not Elon students.
Zachary was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and Brenner was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and simple possession of marijuana.
Burlington Police worked with Town of Elon Police and Elon Campus Police to arrest Zachary after searching his apartment.
Captain Jeff Wood with the Burlington Police Department led the investigation. Wood said he asked Campus and Town Police officers to pull Zachary out of class because of timing.
“We were in a position where we didn’t want to wait or couldn’t wait,” Wood said.
