Middletown Woman Among 4 Charged Following Rowan University Drug Raid

Glassboro Police recovered large amounts of LSD, MDMA and almost $30,000 in cash.

Four 19-year-olds were charged Friday morning after police discovered about 100 doses of LSD, about three-quarters of a pound of MDMA, under 50 grams of marijuana, paraphernalia and $28,942 in cash in a safe in a dorm room on the campus at Rowan University, nj.com reports.

The street value of the LSD is about $2,000, and the value of the MDMA is about $30,000, according to the report.

According to the report, the four charged were:

* Rowan student Brian M. Taylor, of Manchester, charged with possession with intent to distribute LSD, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute MDMA and three counts of possession with intent to distribute CDS in a school zone;

* Rowan student Brian Bal, of Bogota, charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams and possession of paraphernalia;

* Kayla Mehalick, of Middletown, charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams; and

* Daniel Luzniak, of Pompton Lakes, charged with possession of marijuana under 50 grams.

Taylor was incarcerated in Gloucester County jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bail, according to the report. The other three were issued summonses.

The arrests were made just before 7 a.m. by Glassboro Police, following a lengthy investigation, according to the report. The investigation was conducted in conjunction with Rowan University and Pitman police departments.

I am not playing down the dangers of drug use and I don't know the girl involved here..but "the raid" seems to be due to the boy caught with all the LSD etc. The "Middletown Girl" had under 50 grams, so she could have been at the wrong place at the wrong time. She is 19 years old and made a mistake to have that headline on the Middletown Patch is uncalled for.. Some parents won't admit it but unfortunately, most 19 years probably could be caught with under 50 grams of Marijuana.. She obviously has enough problems with probably being in trouble with school and her parents and I am sure she learned a lesson, but if she were my kid I would be PISSED about that headline.

Diane, I could not agree more.

Legalize it and stop the witch hunt already. It's just stupid.
Diane December 15, 2013 at 09:11 AM
The headline is misleading and unfair. she was given a summons,not in jail with $50,000 bail like the boy.

Totally agree that this headline is very harsh. Totally not necessary to humiliate this child and her family.
The ignorant one December 22, 2013 at 05:32 PM
No matter how many people hate the headline, they are not gonna change it and its perfectly legal. If this was you, you would be in the headline too. Its a middletown newspaper
Diane December 22, 2013 at 10:12 PM
Oh, Absolutely Shawn. However, the next time you receive a summons I assume you will be happy it is headlines on the Middletown Patch, correct?

Let's not make any assumptions about "lessons" that this girl may have learned. If she's hanging out with drug dealers, that doesn't say a lot about her. I'll bet she's into a lot more than just some weed. She's embarrassed by the headline? GOOD.

Let the record show that the gentleman in question is her boyfriend.
The ignorant one December 26, 2013 at 06:12 PM
Um, I don't do drugs so my name won't be in the headlines ass
Diane December 26, 2013 at 06:23 PM
You can get a summons for anything, not just drugs and I will refrain from using language that only the ignorant use.
