NEWPORT NEWS, Va., April 4 (UPI) -- Two students are banned from campus as authorities investigate a suspected meth lab in a dormitory at Christopher Newport University in Virginia, officials say.

In a statement released Tuesday, university officials said the two students are not allowed on the Newport News campus, the Newport News Daily Press reported. No information was released about the students.

The dorm was evacuated Friday after the discovery of what was described as a suspicious substance in one of the rooms, officials said. Police also discovered marijuana and drug paraphernalia in a vehicle that was searched after city police were alerted by a drug-sniffing dog.

Christopher Newport is a public university with about 4,800 students, most of them undergraduates. It was founded in 1960, originally to offer extension courses working with the College of William and Mary.
