REXBURG, Idaho — Bottles and packages full of marijuana, wads of cash, cocaine, THC cartridges, mushrooms and paraphernalia were among the items found in an apartment Friday night that led to the arrest of four Brigham Young University-Idaho students.

Police were called to The Gates at Rexburg Apartments, 370 W. 700 South, after the manager reported the smell of marijuana coming from a tenant’s vehicle. The manager also said there were ongoing complaints of marijuana odor coming from a specific apartment.

Officers arrived, and the tenants authorized a search of their apartment. Police found cocaine, marijuana in multiple forms, 80 vape cartridges containing THC, prescription drugs, hundreds of dollars in cash, laptops, phones, packaging and other drug-related material.

"They were packaging it and intended to sell it," Rexburg Police Chief Shane Turman told EastIdahoNews.com. "Our officers did a phenomenal job on this case and we want to send the message that we don’t tolerate drug use. We’re going to go after you if you’re selling and distributing. We’re not going to put up with it."

Trey Hill, 21, and Dallin Elliott, 20, were arrested on suspicion of multiple felony and misdemeanor drug charges.

At least two other students were arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor charges and later released.

The men are expected to appear in court this week.
