Two College Station men were arrested this week by Texas A&M University Police in separate drug incidents.

According to authorities, Benjamin Andrew Denena, 18, was arrested at an apartment complex in the 500 block of George Bush Drive on Tuesday and charged with possession of marijuana, THC oil, ecstasy, LSD, cocaine and marijuana. He faces a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison; a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison; three state jail felonies punishable by up to two years in a state jail; and a marijuana charge. He was released from the Brazos County Jail on $11,200 bond.

The next night, authorities said a Texas A&M police officer was dispatched to a campus apartment after receiving a complaint about the odor of marijuana. The officer spoke with 22-year-old Dev M. Shah, who consented to his room being searched. Authorities said they found a container of marijuana, a bag containing 388 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, 30.41 grams of cocaine, a suitcase containing 104 one-gram THC vials, a container of THC wax and drug paraphernalia. He is charged with three second-degree felonies and two misdemeanors and remains in the Brazos County Jail on $68,200 bond.

Authorities do not indicate the two cases are connected.
