The residence of a University of Central Florida student housed a cache of explosive chemicals and a drug den, deputies said.
Investigators on Wednesday found jugs of corrosive acids and other chemicals inside the student’s Campus Crossings apartment in east Orange County. They also seized cocaine, Ecstasy and oxycodone tablets, methamphetamine and dozens of glass beakers and flasks used to ‘cook’ meth — a highly addictive drug.
William Cecil told Orange County sheriff’s deputies that he used the compounds to make amphetamine, another controlled drug. He also rattled off a tally of substances he kept under his bed that read like the inventory list of a chemical supply company, records show.
