A freshman at the University of California Santa Cruz is facing decades in jail and millions in fines after police say he sold drugs through an app he called “Banana Plug.”

Collin Riley Howard, 18, was charged “with distribution and possession with intent to distribute cocaine and methamphetamine,” according to the indictment filed Thursday by a federal grand jury in the Northern District of California.

Police discovered the app, which offered the sale of cocaine, “molly” and “shrooms,” after finding posters advertising it on campus. The app, which was available in Apple’s App Store, also encouraged users to make special requests.
