Drugs are continually finding their way to colleges campuses. Undercover officers made one of the largest busts in college history at the San Diego State University after the death of a student from cocaine and alcohol poisoning. Undercover officers investigated student housing and dormitories, with the battering down of frat doors at the final sting.
A five months investigation ended when officers from Drug Enforcement battered a door down at a frat house at the San Diego State University. The sting netted 350 Ecstasy pills, 30 vials of hash oil, 50 pounds of marijuana,4 pounds of cocaine, $60.000 and two guns. It was the biggest drug bust in college history. Police made 128 arrests, included were 95 students.
The raid came a year after the overdose death of Jenny Poliakoff, a 19 year old student of the university. The girl had attended a sorority dance the night before her death and died of cocaine and alcohol poisoning. Another student who attended the dance from a nearby college also died. Still another student went into a drug induced mania and friends stunned him with a Taser gun to subdue him. He survived.
Officers and prosecutors alike were astounded that such wide spread drug dealing was taking place at this reputable university. Damon Mosler, chief of the narcotic division said, ” These guys had to be taken down.” Lists of a handwritten business plan was found detailing the markup of drugs for sale.
It was found that students sent mass messages to clients promoting a sale on cocaine. Undercover work took place all over the university grounds on to the beaches. Officers said the culprits were both arrogant and naive. One student after being charged, asked it his being arrested would hinder his going into law enforcement.
Information came from those arrested led to the arrest of the drug dealers. Mosler said, “We were happy to have these minnows as bait to find the bigger fish.” Most students arrested with small amounts were fined and sent to counseling. The dealers will do prison time. Officers were surprised at how easy it was to get drugs from the dealers. When asked for drugs, the dealers asked no questions, they were ready to sell. It was an easy take down.
