A Fairfield University student faces multiple narcotics charges after an investigation launched when university public safety discovered the student's business cards he allegedly used to promote pot sales.
James Torpey, 18, of Roxbury, Mass. was charged Wednesday with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana within 1,500 feet of a school (in this case, Fairfield Prep).
According to the police report, Torpey was advertising his sales through business cards, which were branded "Bean Marijuana, Inc."
The Fairfield Police Narcotics Division used an informant, who reportedly made several purchases from Torpey in the student's dorm room, police said.
Police then executed a search warrant for Torpey's dorm. The search revealed an amount of marijuana exceeding personal use, cash, and drug paraphernalia, police said.
Torpey was arrested and transported to police headquarters, where he was charged. He was released on a promise to appear in court on Dec. 12.
