Police allege that a pair of Old Dominion University students took their study of economics from the classroom to the streets. Daniel Reich and David M. Drewry have been arrested on multiple drug charges.
The charges stem from a police investigation that began when drug dogs hit on some packages that had been mailed from California to a home off west 41st Street in Norfolk. Police reports indicate that the packages contained six pounds of marijuana.
When the packages of pot were discovered, police set up a sting. An undercover officer delivered the package. When Reich accepted it he was arrested and charged with possession with intent to sell or distribute marijuana, transporting a controlled substance into Virginia and possession of controlled substances. Drewry has been charged with possession of marijuana, two counts of possession of a controlled substance and possession of a firearm while in possession of drugs.
According to the police affidavit, Reich admitted to police that he has been receiving "two or three pounds of marijuana weekly".
