Penn State police searched an on-campus apartment of four football players for marijuana the night of last month's Blue-White Game, according to court records.

An application for search warrant, signed early April 26, identifies the apartment residents as Stephfon Green, Devon Still, Eric Latimore and Johnnie Troutman. None of the players has been charged, and the results of the seizure have not yet been released.

"We are aware of it, and we are waiting to find out what all the facts are," Penn State spokesman Jeff Nelson said.

According to the affidavit of probable cause, police responded to a report of a loud party at the Nittany Apartments complex. After arriving, police heard a fire alarm and "detected a strong odor of burnt marijuana" near the apartment, the affidavit states.

After knocking on the door and receiving no response, police entered the apartment "for health and safety reasons," the affidavit states. A woman who said she had a key unlocked the door, the affidavit states.

Upon entering, police observed marijuana "in plain view in the kitchen," the affidavit states. The warrant was served at 1 a.m. April 26, less than 12 hours after the Blue-White spring game.

Last September, police served a similar warrant to an on-campus apartment party. As a result, players Maurice Evans and Abe Koroma were charged with possession of marijuana and began serving probation in February. They also served a three-game suspension.
