Princeton U student charged over mailed package of drugs
A Princeton University student was arrested after picking up a package at the Frist Campus Center mailroom that police say contained ecstasy.
The package addressed to student Julian Edgren arrived at the mailroom in mid-December according to the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office. Mailroom staff contacted Princeton University's Department of Public Safety who alerted the Mercer County Narcotics Task Force.
Surveillance was then set up to watch for whoever came to claim the package. Edgren, a Princeton High School graduate, signed for the package late Tuesday afternoon and was arrested and charged with five counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, five counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute, one count of possession of a prescription legend drug, one count of a prescription legend drug with the intent to distribute, and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
When he picked up the package, Edgren was carrying a duffel bag containing about half an ounce of liquid LSD, 55 grams of marijuana, five grams of hashish, 60 Adderall pills, a laptop computer, two digital scales, and $400 in cash according to the Prosecutor's Office.
Police also searched Edgren's dorm room at Edwards Hall and found psilocybin ("mushrooms") in a second package he picked up. Additional mushrooms, 31 marijuana cookies and assorted drug paraphernalia were found in his dorm room according to the Prosecutor's Office.
He is free on $25,000 bail. A campus spokesman told Planet Princeton Edgren remains enrolled but is banned from campus.
