on drug distribution charges that date back to Oct. 2012.

According to CSU Police Department, officers brought Wynn and Jheryl Thomas, a senior business administration major, into custody Thursday night at 11 p.m. on warrants resulting from an ongoing criminal investigation.

There is an outstanding warrant for Abraham Teshale, a sophomore chemistry major, also involved in the investigation.

Wynn, Thomas and Teshale did not return requests for comment.

“The investigation centers around the distribution of marijuana and prescription drugs,” wrote CSUPD Public Information Officer Dell Rae Moellenberg in an e-mail to the Collegian.

Wynn appeared in three games for CSU this season, collecting one steal and missing his only field goal attempt.

“We were surprised and disappointed to learn in early March about the situation involving walk-on men’s basketball student-athlete Stephon Wynn,” CSU Deputy Director of Athletics John Morris wrote in an email to the Collegian. “He was immediately suspended from all team activities, and was subsequently dismissed from the team. Due to the ongoing investigation, we will have no further comment on this matter.”

CSU police issued a warrant for Wynn’s arrest Wednesday. The charges include distribution of a Schedule Two controlled substance and marijuana distribution of less than five pounds.
