Tatiana Andrea Galiano

ATHENS, Ga. -- A University of Georgia student sold marijuana and LSD to other students out of her Baxter Street dormitory room, Athens-Clarke police said.


Members of the Northeast Georgia Drug Task Force and UGA police searched the Creswell Hall room of 18-year-old Tatiana Andrea Galiano on Wednesday morning and found drugs, a scale and packaging for distributing drugs, according to police.

During the investigation, which was initiated by UGA police, drug task force members determined Galiano was selling pot and LSD to other students from her dorm room, Athens-Clarke police Lt. Mike Hunsinger said.

Galiano was in her room when police executed a search warrant, and she was arrested on charges of possession with intent to distribute a Schedule I drug, sale of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, police said.

Officers also found smoking devices and pill containers, according to police.

Galiano was released from the Clarke County Jail on Thursday, after posting a $2,000 bond.

Other unrelated investigations are focusing on UGA students, but not necessarily for dealing drugs on campus, according to Hunsinger, commanding officer of the Northeast Georgia Drug Task Force.
