FAR Eastern University center Anthony Hargrove remained in jail on Thursday, two days after being arrested just outside the school campus for alleged drug possession.
Officers at the Manila Police District Station 4 in Sampaloc, Manila confirmed that Hargrove is still detained with Adam Mohammed, a member of the FEU Tamaraws Team B, when Spin.ph visited the precinct on Thursday.
The officers added that the two Tamaraws were set to undergo inquest proceedings on Thursday.
FEU has yet to issue a statement on the matter, but a source said it might take time for Hargrove and Mohammed to be released as the bail will be in the six-figure range each.
American Hargrove, the starting center of the Tamaraws in the last UAAP season, and Mohammed were stopped late Tuesday by police who said they were "acting suspiciously" near the FEU campus.
Mohammed, a Canadian, was serving residency in the school.
When searched, the pair yielded a cigarette stick and a sachet which police said they suspect contained marijuana.
Police officials denied Spin.ph’s request to interview Hargrove.
