A Westminster College student found himself behind bars when Fulton Police officers investigating damage to his vehicle found a "substantial" amount of marijuana Sunday.

The FPD was investigating property damage to a gray 2005 Acura shortly after midnight Sunday when they found marijuana in the vehicle. By 3:30 p.m., they identified its owner as Michael Wayne Peters, 19, living at 501 Westminster Ave. The Westminster student was arrested and charged with distribution of a controlled substance.

A search of his dorm room revealed more marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The investigation is ongoing and further charges are pending.
