UOPD makes an arrest for possession of methamphetamine

University of Oregon Police Department arrested an individual this afternoon for possession of methamphetamine and trespassing across the street from the University of Oregon at the corner of Franklin Boulevard and Onyx Street. Another individual was cited to appear in court.

“They were both previously arrested on campus for trespassing,” said UOPD Sergeant Scott Geeting.

The person arrested had a warrant out for their arrest, and the police department must take someone into custody in that case, according to Geeting.

Both individuals remain unidentified.

Before being searched and placed into the police car, the arrested individual was treated by medics. UOPD was not allowed to release any information about the nature of the treatment.
