Defensive lineman arrested for drug trafficking

A University defensive lineman was arrested on charges of drug trafficking Thursday.

Jhalil Croley, 21, were confronted by police for a loud music call at his residence on the 700 block of South College shortly after 2 p.m., said Deputy Chief Tony Hetrick.

Hetrick said officers smelled marijuana and asked to come into his residence, which Croley initially refused.

Croley did eventually give written consent, Hetrick said, and police found packaged marijuana, scales and other drug paraphernalia.

He was also charged with resisting arrest. When police tried to arrest him, Hetrick said it took “more than one officer to take him down.”

Croley is currently lodged at the Wood County Justice Center.
