A former chapter president of a Cal Poly fraternity that was allegedly targeted for an armed robbery was charged Wednesday with two drug-related felonies.
Gear Thomas McMillan, 22, of San Luis Obispo, is scheduled to appear in San Luis Obispo Superior Court on Thursday for an arraignment. On Wednesday, the District Attorney’s Office charged him with possession of marijuana for sale and possession for sale of a controlled substance.
McMillan was president of the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity until this past May and has remained an active member of the fraternity. On Aug. 10, five Cal Poly football players were arrested on suspicion of attempting to rob the fraternity. Investigators believed the alleged robbers were looking for marijuana.
After the alleged robbery attempt, McMillan told The Tribune there were no drugs at the residence.
Police allegedly found the marijuana in McMillan’s possession during a search conducted nearly a month after the attempted robbery. The amount of marijuana was not disclosed in the criminal complaint filed in court.
