A Fairfield University student faces drug charges after marijuana, steroids, and drug paraphernalia were allegedly found in his dorm room, police said.

Vincent Giacovas, 18, of Briarcliff Manor, NY, was charged with failure to keep a drug in its original container, use and possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of less than four ounces of marijuana, and possession of less than a half-ounce of marijuana, according to the police report.

Police reportedly found on Friday three vials of steroids, syringes, rolling papers, and 100 pills of the drug Clomid in Giacovas' room, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said. He was subsequently arrested.

Giacovas was released after posting a $250 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on $250.

Why was his room searched? What is the drug Clomid? Why was he charged with possession of less than 4oz of marijuana and ALSO "less than a half ounce"? (Was the idea to separate them so the charges could be restructured one way or another?) I'm not really that interested in these details as I am in pointing out that a few additional details would give the reader an actual understanding about what was really going on, rather than raising more questions than it answers. This sort of reporting is common in television news too. The news is "reported" but without context it is not understood. Sometimes it seems that is the purpose: to enumerate incidents without context or explanation. Endless headlines without legs don't get far in the "long run" for comprehension.

Clomid is a pregnancy hormone that is used during the post cycle therapy of a steroid cycle. in females it is used for fertility reasons, to increase egg production. for males, it increase the bodies ability to produce testosterone, which natural testosterone production is limited during a steroid cycle because you are getting a synthetic version. 18 is too young to be messing with steroids. he could screw up his body permanantly.
