Crime Watch

REXBURG — Bottles and packages full of marijuana, wads of cash, cocaine, THC cartridges, mushrooms and paraphernalia were among the items found in an apartment Friday night that led to the arrest of four Brigham Young University-Idaho students.

Police were called to The Gates at Rexburg Apartments on Seventh South after the manager reported the smell of marijuana coming from a tenant’s vehicle. The manager also said there were ongoing complaints of marijuana odor coming from a specific apartment.

Officers arrived, and the tenants authorized a search of their apartment. Police found cocaine, marijuana in multiple forms, 80 vape cartages containing THC, prescription drugs, hundreds of dollars in cash, laptops, phones, packaging and other drug-related material.

“They were packaging it and intended to sell it,” Rexburg Police Chief Shane Turman tells “Our officers did a phenomenal job on this case and we want to send the message that we don’t tolerate drug use. We’re going to go after you if you’re selling and distributing. We’re not going to put up with it.”

Trey Hill, 21, and Dallin Elliott, 20, were arrested on multiple felony and misdemeanor drug charges.

At least two other students were arrested and released on misdemeanor charges.

The suspects are expected to appear in court this week.
