SOUTH  KINGSTOWN, R.I. - An 18 year-old URI student is facing four felony charges for allegedly selling MDMA, amphetamines and marijuana out of his dorm room on campus.

Police say during the month of April, they caught wind that MDMA, marijuana, and amphetamine pills were being sold in and around the dormitories at the University of Rhode Island Kingston campus.

Police obtained a search warrant for room 108 in the Tucker Hall dormatory. When they searched the room, police say they found a large quantity of MDMA, money, marijuana, amphetamine pills, alcohol, and an air-soft gun.

According to police, they arrested URI student Dylan Bednarz, 18, in connection with the investigation. Bednarz faces four felony charges:

  • Felony count of possession with intent to deliver MDMA
  • Felony count of possession with intent to deliver marijuana
  • Felony count of possession of amphetamine
  • Felony count of possession of a firearm while committing a crime of violence

Police say another student was cited for the civil violation of possession of marijuana while the search warrant was being executed.
