LOGAN, Utah, April 11, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — A member of the Utah State University football team was arrested Friday after the Logan police say he sold illegal drugs to an informant.
Christopher Copier, 24, was reportedly caught with 46 ecstasy pills and a quarter pound of marijuana.
Logan Police Department officials say when they searched a safe in Copier’s off-campus residence, they found more marijuana and marijuana products, psilocybin mushrooms, and bags of Xanax.
Officers also found a .40-caliber handgun and $1,600 in cash. Copier’s urine test indicated he had marijuana in his system.
In all, Copier faces four second-degree and two third-degree felony changes of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and one third-degree felony charge of possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person.
Copier started his career in football at Snow College before transferring to USU.
Copier, a 6-feet-6-inch senior, was a tight end on the USU team, which suspended him indefinitely after his arrest. Copier was booked into the Cache County Jail, and has been released on bail.
