WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A former Purdue student now faces multiple charges for a drug-related incident back in December.

Sawyer Doup has been charged with three felony counts, including dealing a controlled substance. He was arrested after police received a report of drug activity in Owen Residence Hall.

Police learned a female student had been taken to the hospital on December 9th after smoking "dab", a wax-like substance extracted from marijuana with high THC. Prosecutors say the girl's boyfriend said he got the substance from a dealer in Owen Residence hall.

Police say the investigation turned up 125 hits of LSD and 1 gram of "dab." Doup was barred from campus back in December.
