A USI student has been accused of a felony charge in dealing marijuana.

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office was called to a residence hall apartment in Governor's Hall at 1700 Rankin Lane to help out USI Security. They were investigating what they believed to be the odor of marijuana.

After a search, deputies said they arrested 19-year-old Orlando Estephan Leonel Gamez, of Portage, Indiana.

Authorities say 60 individual bags of suspected marijuana were found, along with details of what deputies suspect were drug transactions. 

Gamez admitted ownership of the marijuana. He was taken to the Vanderburgh County Detention Center.
