WINCHESTER -- City police arrested two Shenandoah University students on charges of having marijuana at a campus dorm early Tuesday morning.

Trace Nolan Rossi, 19, of Winchester, and Robert Dennis O'Brien, 20, of Fallston, Md., are each charged with one misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, according to Winchester police Sgt. Frank Myrtle. Both men live in the dorms on University Drive, according to court information.

A university security officer notified police about the suspected drugs, Myrtle said. Both men were arrested shortly after midnight without incident.

Officers recovered approximately 5 grams of marijuana during a search of the dorm room at the university building in the 600 block of Millwood Avenue, Myrtle said. The amount of the drug has a street value of $100, according to Myrtle.

Officers also seized suspected drug paraphernalia such as scales and plastic baggies, Myrtle said.

A judge in Winchester General District Court on Tuesday granted each man release pending the posting of $2,500 secured bond. The defendants appeared for their court hearings via video from the regional jail. The judge set their trial dates for Nov. 9, according to court information.
