A female college student at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling had a gram of pot stolen from her dorm room and reported the theft to the Sterling Police Department on May 9.
Problem is, 19-year-old Aurelia Paici -- a Littleton resident attending college in the northeastern Colorado town -- isn’t old enough to legally possess marijuana in Colorado sans a medical license.
“She’s actually not old enough to possess the marijuana and didn’t present a medicinal card,” said Sterling Police Major Scott Annable, noting that Coloradans 18 and older can legally obtain medical marijuana with a state-issued license. “If we do recover it, and if it proves to be marijuana, we suspect we’ll charge her with possession of marijuana.”
