Tal Grinbaum, 18, of Great Neck, N.Y., was charged with possession of a controlled substance around 11:45 p.m. Monday after a residential advisor at Fairfield University's Campion Hall detected the odor of marijuana while walking past Grinbaum's dorm room, police said.

Campus security officers were called and a search of the room led to the discovery of a pack of EZ Winder wrappers and a small bag of marijuana, according to police.

He was released on a promise to appear Nov. 9 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
