    100 at San Diego State arrested in drug bust

    Nearly 100 students at San Diego State arrested in drug bust


    http://www.fox6.com/news/local/story.as ... e0fe547580

    San Diego, CA. -- An undercover drug operation leads to the arrest of 96 individuals, including 75 students selling or buying cocaine, marijuana, or ecstasy on SDSU’s campus.

    In May of 2007, an SDSU student was found dead in her bedroom from a drug overdose and as a result, SDSU police began an undercover investigation known as "Operation Sudden Fall."

    DEA Agents infiltrated several student drug distribution cells and more than 130 drug purchases and seizures were made during the five-month operation.

    “Our children are our biggest asset and absent a safe, drug free learning environment, their chances of succeeding are greatly diminished. The San Diego State University Police and SDSU administration are to be commended for their swift actions in confronting the drug use problem on campus,

    Just saw the huge news conference on Fox News. DEA, local, and the University all worked to catch this. This is a huge trafficking ring in the school and out. A lot of the names were Hispanic. Will be interesting to see if any are illegals in the college just wanting their DREAM.

    Fox just said it was so sophisticated that it was linked to a drug cartel.

    Among those arrested were 75 students, some of them working toward criminal justice or homeland security degrees. One criminal justice major was charged with possession of guns and cocaine, authorities said.

    Yeah, looks like their dream was to make it easier for the cartels to invade the US, along with more IA's & earn lots of cash. I would like to know many of these students are IA's or anchor babies of IA's AND if they were paying in-state tuiton?

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Authorities have arrested nearly 100 people and seized guns and drugs in a sting operation at San Diego State University in California, the Drug Enforcement Administration said Tuesday.

    Among those arrested were 75 students, some of them working toward criminal justice or homeland security degrees. One criminal justice major was charged with possession of guns and cocaine, authorities said.

    One student sent a mass text message offering a "sale" on cocaine, the DEA said in a news release.

    Campus police and the DEA began their undercover operation after the death of a student from an overdose in May 2007, the news release said. A second overdose death occurred as recently as February at a fraternity house.

    "DEA agents infiltrated several student drug distribution cells and more than 130 drug purchases and seizures were made" during the investigation known as Operation Sudden Fall, the news release said.

    Officials arrested 75 students and 21 non-students on a variety of drug charges, including selling cocaine.

    Authorities say they infiltrated seven campus fraternities and found that in some, most of the students were aware of drug dealing by fraternity brothers.

    The news release alleges a member of the Theta Chi fraternity sent a mass text message to his "faithful customers" saying he and some others temporarily would be unable to complete orders for drug sales due to a trip to Las Vegas, Nevada.

    The text message went on to discuss a "sale" on cocaine and gave details on reduced prices, the news release said.

    One student allegedly dealing cocaine was a month short of obtaining a master's degree in Homeland Security and worked with campus police as a student community service officer.

    "This operation shows how accessible and pervasive illegal drugs continue to be on our college campuses, and how common it is for students to be selling to other students," said San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis.

    Officials say the evidence seized as part of Operation Sudden Fall includes four pounds of cocaine, 50 pounds of marijuana and 350 ecstasy pills. Authorities also confiscated a shotgun, three semiautomatic pistols and $60,000.

    Gives new meaning to 'working one's way through college'.

    Since deaths from overdoses occurred, shouldn't they be charged as accessories in those deaths?

    I think so too. I think they'll all be charged with murder or the very least accessory since they provided the drugs that led to the person's death. This story should open the eyes to the public as to the problem of drugs filtering through our porous borders and getting in to the hands of our citizens and those here illegally and the need to secure the border and cut ties with Mexico and treat them as we would a terrorist nation. But our government will do nothing and treat this as an isolated case.

    CA: 96 Students, Others Arrested in Massive Drug Raid at San

    96 Students, Others Arrested in Massive Drug Raid at San Diego State University
    Tuesday, May 06, 2008
    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,354314,00.html

    SAN DIEGO — Ninety-six students, local gang members and others were arrested Tuesday in a massive drug raid at San Diego State University.

    Drugs including cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana and methamphetamines were confiscated in the sting, which came as the result of a months-long undercover operation, according to officials with the San Diego County District Attorney's Office and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

    Many of the students arrested were members of the Theta Chi and Phi Kappa Psi fraternities. One of the gang members taken into custody allegedly has ties to Mexican drug cartels.

    The DEA said a member of the Theta Chi fraternity 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.

    In addition to large quantities of narcotics, money and weapons were also seized from sellers and buyers in the bust.

    Authorities confiscated two kilograms of cocaine, about 350 ecstasy pills, marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms, hash oil, methamphetamines and illicit prescription drugs, as well as several guns and at least $60,000 in cash.

    San Diego State University Drug Raid Undercover officers in "Operation Sudden Fall," as it was called, conducted more than 130 drug purchases with sellers, authorities said.

    Officials said they were surprised by the sophistication of the campus smuggling and trafficking network.

    Several of the 96 defendants — 75 of whom are students — were appearing in state court to face charges Tuesday afternoon.

    Eighteen of the students were arrested Tuesday when nine search warrants were executed at various locations, among them fraternities.

    The undercover sting was spawned by the drug-overdose death of a college student last year.

    FOX News' Catherine Donaldson-Evans and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
