Stevens students arrested in pot raid

marijuana-stevens-hoboken.gifApparently under investigation for a few months, three Stevens students were busted this past Saturday. They’re charged with being in possession of “Engineered Weed” with the intent to distribute, amongst other charges.

I find one quote from this article a little funny, coming from one of those charged:

Regarding whether or not he believes he himself is innocent, Schoen responded, “Corruption is all over Hoboken; innocent people go to jail all the time.” and later added “I was there a lot, but just to take advantage of that crazy high definition projector,” he said.

He may be right about the corruption part, but can anyone remember innocent people going to Jail?

Who knew Hi-Def TV would get you in trouble?

Three Stevens students arrested in drug raid

After a lengthy investigation, Hoboken Police took senior Daniel Jabbour and sophomores Timothy Diehl and Chris Schoen into custody at approximately 2 Saturday morning, Stevens Police Chief Tim Griffin told The Stute. A Hoboken Police Department (HPD) report later identified a fourth student, Bohyam Yoo. Yoo is a student from Fairleigh Dickinson University. HPD charged all three Stevens students with one count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) with intent to distribute in the third degree, and one count of conspiracy to distribute a CDS in the third degree, Griffin said. The arrests took place at the Jabbour residence on the 10th Street block of Washington St., Griffin added, after police executed a search warrant and found an “unknown quantity” of marijuana.

“Marijuana in a quantity of one ounce or more but less than five pounds including any adulterants or [sic.] dilutants, “is guilty of a crime of the third degree,” according to N.J.S.A. ยง 2C:35-5. If convicted, the students face a fine of up to $25,000, as per N.J.S.A. ยง 2C:35-5, and a prison sentence between three and five years, as per N.J.S.A. ยง 2C:43-6.

Griffin said that the Hoboken Police Street Crimes Unit has been investigating the case for several months, and informed Stevens Police (SITpo) a few weeks ago of the ongoing investigation. Head of Campus Security and Vice President of Student Development Joseph Stahley added, “[Stevens Police officer] Sgt. Collins was present at the arrest, which took place off-campus, as a courtesy to us.”

This would have been cause to “expel” a student from Stevens in the late 1950’s. We students signed a statement giving the administration the right to expel if we did anything to “damage the name of the Institute”. I recall several being dismissed or expelled. frankJ ’60

The Stute is a newspaper, not magazine. It has existed for 103 years.

There is NO truth in the rumor that he claimed to be The Hoboken City Council President.

However, we are waiting to see if their is a letter in the Hoboken Reporter stateing he is well respected and is am honor to serve with him and that these charges are politically motivated.
