North Carolina State University police arrested a 26-year-old undergraduate on a street corner late Monday on a charge of possessing LSD.
According to arrest paperwork, Robert Vinsant Cox II of 310 Vinca Circle in Cary had LSD with him when police took him into custody him at Dan Allen and Thurman drives at about 10 p.m.
Police did not say how much LSD they believe Cox had. Possession of any amount is a felony under state law.
According to the university’s online directory, Cox is a junior engineering major.
A magistrate set Cox’s bail at $5,000, noting previous drug convictions. Cox posted bail Tuesday morning and was released.
Cox was convicted in May 2012 of possession of marijuana and two others drugs with intent to sell and was placed on probation.
He was arrested two months later on a felony charge of selling or delivering drugs. He was convicted of that charge in February 2013, his probation was revoked and he was jailed for almost 11 months.
