On Wednesday morning, Erie County Sheriff's narcotics unit and the Buffalo police raided 45 Tyler St., near South Campus, and arrested UB student Matthew McCarty, a senior in the management school, for drug possession. The narcotics unit had been investigating the house prior to the arrest.
The location is known among students as a "drug house," and a place where people often come in and out.
Police found nearly three pounds of marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms in McCarty's home the morning of the raid, according to Buffalo police.
Following his arrest, McCarty was placed in the Erie County Holding Center Wednesday night, awaiting his arraignment. He was charged with two counts of possession, one for marijuana and the other for hallucinogenic mushrooms. Police also charged him with intent to sell the drugs. If McCarty is convicted, he could face a prison sentence of up to 25 years.
