Provo Police arrested a BYU student Tuesday night on suspicion of a stolen firearm and various drug related charges.

During the search, police found 130 grams of marijuana packaged in multiple bags and 12 125-milligram capsules of “dab.” Each dab capsule had the THC equivalent of 60 joints (the chemical that causes the high from using marijuana.) Detectives also located scales and other paraphernalia usually associated with marijuana dealers.
