Narcotics officers made the arrest late Thursday afternoon after intercepting a delivery intended for Abreu. He was charged with third-degree felonies for trafficking and marijuana possession.
The Akron Beacon Journal reported that Abreu remains in Summit County Jail. A University of Akron statement said Abreu's suspension is pending the outcome of charges and that the university is gathering more information.
Akron has won 19 of its last 20 games and clinched its second straight Mid-American Conference championship earlier this week. A junior from Puerto Rico, Abreu is a three-year starter and is averaging career-bests of 10.3 points and 6 assists per game this season.
Akron's regular-season finale is Friday night vs. Kent State.
