Elon Police went to Ashley
Oaks Sunday night with a warrant
for arrest, but found much more
than they bargained for.
Sunday at 6 p.m., police went
to the apartment of William
Ganey with a warrant for arrest due
to an assault charge. On Saturday
night, Elon student Ian Macleod
reported he was assaulted by
Ganey. That night, Macleod was
admitted to Alamance Memorial
Hospital for treatment for a busted
lip and ended up having
According to Dan Ingle, Chief
of Elon College Police, when
officers entered Ganey's apartment
on Sunday with a warrant for
arrest, a bong was in plain view.
"Once he (the officer)
observed the bong, that was
sufficient probable cause to search.
He had reasonable grounds to
believe that there could be drugs
on that property," Ingle said.
Upon requesting permission to
search, the officers found steroids,
marijuana, and other drug
pafaphemalia, according to police
reports. Not only was Ganey
arrested, but sophomores Calvin
C. Hanchey and Alan A. Wright
were as well, according to police
Possession of steroids is a
felony offense, according to
Detective Mike Woznick of the
Elon College police department.
"It's a felony” just because of the
volume involved. And believe
me, the volume was nothing
really big; just enough to meet the
criteria for being a felony,"
According to Woznick, more 100
dosage units were found.
Ganey's charges include assault
inflicting serious injury, as a
result from the incident with
Macleod, felonious possession of
a controlled substance, and also
possession of drug paraphernalia.
He was released under $1,000
Both Wright and Hanchey are
charged with possession of
marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Unsecured bonds are set for them
at $200 each.
Both Ingle and Woznick said
they determine ownership of the
drugs through investigation.
"You find that out just through
Six teenagers were arrested
earlier this week in connection
with 16 of the 27 automobile
break-ins that have occurred in the
town since the start of the 1990-91
On Monday, James E. Hurst,
16, of 206 S. O'Kelly Ave., was
arrested on six counts of breaking
an entering, three counts of
misdemeanor larceny and one
count of felonious larceny,
according to police reports. He is
accused of breaking into 10
vehicles on September 21. From
one of the vans, he allegedly took
four guitars and two amplifiers
valued at $3,000.

investigations. You’ve got to get
out there and work to determine
that," Ingle said.
The maximum penalty for
first offense of a misdemeanor
possession of marijuana is a $100
fine. The penalty for possession
of drug paraphernalia is a two-
year misdemeanor charge. The
maximum penalty for steroids is
five years and $500.
Ingle and Woznick don’t feel
Ashley Oaks is a prime target for
drug busts. "I can't say it's
(Ashley Oaks) any worse than any
other apartment complex...I'm
sure that problems come up at
different times elsewhere...It could
happen anywhere," Ingle said.
What will happen to Ganey,
Hanchey, and Wright’s academic
career is still in question.
According to Ron Klepxiyk, Dean
of Academic Affairs, this case is
"still under investigation and
evaluation." Klepcyk said he
needs clarification from the police
before he decides to do anything.
"Right now, we're in the process
of evaluating the information to
determine what the college will
