WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A former Purdue student is heading to prison for selling drugs from Owen Residence Hall.
Sawyer Doup of Indianapolis was sentenced to two years in the Indiana Department of Corrections, two years on Tippecanoe County Community Corrections and two years on supervised probation. Doup was convicted of Dealing in a Controlled Substance.
As News 18 previously reported, Doup was arrested in December 2017 after police received a report of drug activity in Owen Residence Hall.
Police learned a female student had been taken to the hospital after smoking "dab." It's a wax-like substance extracted from marijuana with high THC.
Prosecutors said the girl's boyfriend told investigators he got the substance from a dealer in Owen Residence Hall. Police said the investigation turned up 125 hits of LSD and 1 gram of "dab."
Prosecutors said Doup admitted he was selling LSD.
