      CCU football player arrested after drugs found in dorm

      A Coastal Carolina University football player was arrested on drug charges.

      John Masley, 20, of Jacksonville, FL., is a junior running back.

      Police say maintenance workers found marijuana on his desk in a residence hall while doing maintenance check last week.

      Police were called and say they also found a mushroom grow garden, a scale, metal grinders, two pills, smoked blunts and cash.

      He faces four counts of possession and one count of distributing, selling, purchasing, or manufacturing drugs near a school. He was arrested Monday, April 15 and released on bond on Tuesday.

      Masley has been removed from the football team, according Coastal Carolina spokesperson Martha Hunn.
