A Stony Brook University student has been charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and other crimes after university police responding to a fire alarm discovered drugs, paraphernalia and cash in her room, according to a press release from the Suffolk County district attorney's office.

The smell of marijuana was coming from defendant Lola Tan's dorm room In Lauterbur Hall, a dorm building in the university's Nobel Halls, on Monday, the press release said. University police, with a resident assistant, entered the room to find marijuana and a pipe in plain view as well as an open safe, in which there was "a large stack of rubber-banded bills," cash totaling $35,960.

When Tan, 22, was asked if there were more drugs in the room, she allegedly confirmed there were and opened the clear plastic bin next to her desk, which the press release said contained vials of ecstasy, bags of hallucinogenic mushrooms, empty capsules, two scales, a pipe, a grinder and scattered pills, among other items.

Tan pleaded not guilty to four counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance in varying degrees, one count of unlawful possession of marijuana and two counts of criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

Attorney information for Tan, a resident of Elmhurst, Queens, was not immediately available.

Bail was set at $75,000 cash or $150,000 bond.
