Students arrested for possession of marijuana, intent to distribute


On March 18 at approximately 9 p.m., ULM’s police department got an anonymous complaint on the ULM Safe App that said Kenya Cobbs was allegedly selling marijuana in room 110 of Madison Hall. 

The complaint stated that there had been heavy foot traffic in and out of the room between 7 and 9 p.m. and drug activity was possible. 

Officers were able to identify the room as Kenya Cobbs’ dorm room. They began reviewing the cameras around the area and saw seven people going in and out of Cobb’s room between those hours, which validated the complaint. 

Officers then went to the location and made contact with Cobbs and his girlfriend, Beverly Campbell. 

They were both advised of their Miranda Rights before officers began questioning them. 

Cobbs invited the officers into his room because he did not want other students to hear the conversation. 

Once in the room, Cobbs and Campbell both admitted to selling marijuana out of the room. 

From there, they directed officers to the closet where they found 147.8 grams of marijuana, three scales, twelve empty packs of cigarillos and a blue and silver hookah. 

Cobbs and Campbell were both arrested, handcuffed and taken to Ouachita Correctional Center where they were booked on the charges of possession with intent to distribute/marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Cobbs bonded out at 1:37 p.m., March 19. Campbell bonded out at 1:32 a.m.,  March 20.
