A Northeastern University freshman was arrested and thrown out of school after he leaned out his dorm room window and announced his roommate was selling marijuana, police said.

Michael Emery, 18, leaned out his window and loudly told a woman in the dorm opposite his that his roommate had the drugs for sale, police said.

Two plainclothes Boston police officers in the building overheard the conversation and made their way up to a second-floor dorm room where they arrested Emery and Matthew Ferrante, 18, of North Andover. The officers found about 4 ounces of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, including a scale, and several bottles of alcohol in the room, the Suffolk County district attorney's office said.

"If you're looking for weed, my roommate Ferrante has some for sale," Emery said out the window, according to the district attorney's office, which released information about the incident that happened Sunday.

The students were arraigned in Roxbury District Court on Tuesday on charges of possession of a class D substance with intent to distribute in a school zone, possession of alcohol by a minor, and conspiracy to violate the state's drug laws. The intent to distribute charge carries a maximum of two years in jail.

They pleaded not guilty and were released on personal recognizance. They are due back in court on Oct. 24.

"They are no longer students here," said Laura Shea, spokeswoman for Northeastern University.
