A Chico State student was arrested on Friday after authorities, acting on a warrant, searched his university-run housing and found a variety of illegal drugs.

The Butte Interagency Narcotics Task Force and the University Police arrested 19-year-old Daniel Pell on suspicion of two charges of possession for sale of a controlled substance.

County narcotics agents had been investigating the suspect for drug possession and sales, which led to the search warrant being issued.

Upon searching the apartment, located at 1325 Nord Ave., officers found 677 Xanax pills, one ounce of MDMA (often called “Molly”) and one Ecstasy pill, according to a University Police press release. The total value of the drugs was estimated to be $6,230.

Police also discovered a digital gram scale and more than $2,100 in cash in the residence.

Following the suspect’s arrest, he was booked into Butte County Jail in Oroville.
