NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Christopher Newport University Police arrested a student in connection with a drug investigation on campus.
Derek Werner, of Chesapeake, was arrested on April 24 and charged with manufacturing a schedule 1 narcotic on school property and possession or manufacture of a schedule 1 narcotic ( Dimethyltryptamine).
According to court documents obtained by WAVY.com, CNUPD received several calls on March 28, 2012 pertaining to alleged illegal narcotic activity in Room 231 at the Wilson Apartments. The next day, police received a similar complaint. Officers responded and confiscated the following items, believed to be consistent with narcotics:
- (2) Glass jars with dark liquid
- (1) Plastic container with a dark/clear liquid
- Rubber tubing
- Container of lighter fluid
Werner told an officer that all of the above items belonged to him, the document states.
"I'm not surprised that he was arrested," says a CNU Sophomore who claims she had a bizarre encounter with Werner while she was writing a paper. "He came over and said what are you doing? I said I'm working on a paper. He sat down anyway."
She remembers Werner talking about drugs in their encounter.
"He was talking about drugs and experimenting with drugs, and he was writing down the affects of them. It was like he was researching and stuff."
We examined the police complaints and it turns out the lab reports show some of the liquids in the bottles found in the apartment were Dimethyltryptamine ( di·meth·yl·tryp·ta·mine). It is known as DMT. It is a psychedelic chemical. It is a hallucinogenic. Of all the psychedelics in the world, DMTdrug.com is by far the most powerful psychedelic known to man.
"After I heard about it, and it was him then that makes sense to me because it was a really strange encounter," the woman said.
On March 31, officers executed a search warrant and confiscated additional items consistent with the manufacture of illegal narcotics. On April 2, during a police interview, Werner again indicated the confiscated items belonged to him, according to court records.
The confiscated items were tested and results came back on April 11 indicating several of the items were positive for Dimethyltryptamine (DMT), a Schedule 1 Narcotic.
