Basically two students had several ounces of pot each, and “material consistent with packaging for street-level distribution,” as well as single doses of other drugs like X/LSD/Percocet (painkiller)/Methylin (Ritalin). They were arrested.

What struck me was this part:

Security had discovered the drugs during the annual fire drills. The Security blotter notes that drugs were found in Bair’s room in Carter at 6:55 p.m. and in Morales’ room in Lambert at 8:45 p.m. on Monday, April 19. That same evening, the room checks also revealed bongs in Williams Hall F and Tyler…

… Upon receiving notification from Security, WPD proceeded to investigate the two rooms. The North Adams Transcript reported that WPD obtained a search warrant for Morales’ room, while Bair consented to a search. “It was a smooth process,” Johnson said.

So when exactly is security allowed to search your room?
