A Mississippi college student was arrested this week after authorities found more than two dozen drug-laced brownies and cookies along with two weapons in his dorm room.

The student, identified as 19-year-old Hardest Vaughn, was arrested and charged with felony drug and weapons crimes.

He is from Southaven, Mississippi, and is a junior at Coahoma County Community College, located north of Clarksdale in the Mississippi Delta.

One of the weapons seized was a semi-automatic assault rifle.

The brownies and chocolate chip cookies are believed to have been laced with THC, which is the primary compound in marijuana that causes a user to get high.
