    Fraternity or "Gang"

    75 students arrested in San Diego University drug bust By ALLISON HOFFMAN, Associated Press Writer
    8 minutes ago



    Dozens of San Diego State University students were arrested after a sweeping drug investigation found that some fraternity members openly dealt drugs and one even sent a mass text message advertising cocaine, authorities said Tuesday.

    Two kilograms of cocaine were seized, along with 350 Ecstasy pills, marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms, hash oil, methamphetamine, illicit prescription drugs, several guns and at least $60,000 in cash, authorities said.

    Of the 96 people arrested, 75 were students. Eighteen of the students were arrested Tuesday when nine search warrants were executed at various locations including fraternities, said Jesse Rodriguez, San Diego County assistant district attorney.

    The undercover probe, dubbed Operation Sudden Fall, was sparked by the cocaine overdose death of a student in May 2007, authorities said. As the investigation continued, another student, from Mesa College, died Feb. 26 of a cocaine overdose at an SDSU fraternity house, the DEA said.

    Those arrested included a student who was about to receive a criminal justice degree and another who was to receive a master's degree in homeland security. Some defendants were scheduled to appear in state court to face charges Tuesday.

    During the probe investigators discovered that in some fraternities most members were aware of "organized drug dealing occurring from the fraternity houses by its members," the Drug Enforcement Administration said in a news release.

    "Undercover agents purchased cocaine from fraternity members and confirmed that a hierarchy existed for the purpose of selling drugs for money," the DEA said.

    The district attorney's office said search warrants were served in San Diego and suburban La Mesa, including the Theta Chi fraternity house and several apartments.

    A member of Theta Chi sent out a mass text message to his "faithful customers" stating that he and his "associates" would be unable to sell cocaine while they were in Las Vegas over one weekend, according to the DEA. The text promoted a cocaine "sale" and listed the reduced prices.

    Theta Chi, founded in 1856, has 131 chapters in the U.S. and Canada and more than 161,000 initiates. A message left at the fraternity's Indianapolis headquarters was not immediately returned.

    University police and federal drug agents worked together in the investigation, making more than 130 undercover drug buys were made at locations including fraternity houses, student parking areas and dormitories, authorities said.

    Shawn Collinsworth, executive director of the national office of Phi Kappa Psi, said he was told by two of the SDSU fraternity chapter's leaders that four of its members were arrested. He added the fraternity is cooperating with the investigation.

    "It isn't behavior becoming of Phi Kappa Psi," Collinsworth said.

    San Diego State is one of the largest schools in California's state university system with about 34,000 students. The campus has an active network of fraternities and sororities.

    Since one of them was about to graduate with a criminal justice degree.....let see him put it to work........surely during the course of the year someone told him that drugs were illegal or maybe he missed that class while in Vegas........maybe he thought DOPE was excluded.

    I think it's safe to say that he has flunked his senior project.

    At least they are putting back Organized in Organized Crime. The College education was paying off in one way or the other.

    They were missing a secret handshake. I'll bet that was it.

    Those arrested included a student who was about to receive a criminal justice degree and another who was to receive a master's degree in homeland security.

    "A sad commentary is that when one of these individuals was arrested, they inquired as (to) whether or not his arrest and incarceration would have an effect on him becoming a federal law enforcement officer," said Ralph Partridge, special agent in charge of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in San Diego
    I don't care who you are that there is funny.

    If that guy thinks with a felony possession and sales of drugs will be overlooked in any LE job capacity he didn't have the brains to be going to college in the first place,maybe he can try the old I was dealing dope to get practice that way when I joined the DEA I would have experience and not be nervous when I was doing undercover drug buys
