Idaho colleges: Former Vandals linebacker accused of selling marijuana


Homer Mauga, 22, has been charged with two counts of felony delivery of a controlled substance in Latah County 2nd District Court. Mauga allegedly sold two bags of marijuana near a university dormitory in late April while being watched by the Latah County Sheriff's Office, which used a criminal informant to make the purchases, according to a probable cause affidavit. The San Diego native was arrested May 3 and released on a $1,000 bond Monday. Mauga told investigators he planned to return to California before joining the Canadian Football League, according to the affidavit, which he will not be able to do if he is convicted of a felony. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing May 16.
