Police arrested two residents of Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., Thursday night for possesion of marijuana and altered driver's licenses.

Mark Natman and David Allen, both 18, were arrested after police received a call from a resident assistant of Coronado who said she smelled marijuana coming from their room.

When police entered Natman's and Allen's room, they immediately noticed a "two-foot water bong" and and a "black chrome pipe" on the floor. At this point Natman exclaimed, "You've got me. I'm busted." Natman allowed police to search his room, where they found several other marijuana pipes, pictures of Natman and friends smoking marijuana and a fake Michigan driver's license.

Natman said the pipe police found was Allen's, who was not in the room at the time. When police returned later that night to talk to Allen, he said the pipe was not his. Natman then said he would claim possesion of the pipe because one of his friends may have left it in the room.

Allen had an altered California driver's license in his name and an expired California license in someone else's name. He was not arrested on possession of marijuana charges but was arrested for having the licenses.

Both Natman and Allen were cited and released.


A Black Jack pizza delivery driver reported his car stolen Sunday from Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., where he was delivering a pizza.

Police were unable to locate the car and have no suspects.
