Ninety-six people were arrested today in a massive drug bust at San Diego State University. Seventy-five of those nabbed were students, many of them studying for criminal-justice or homeland-security degrees, CNN reports. Cocaine, marijuana, and ecstasy were being dealt, largely by fraternity members, during a 5-month undercover DEA operation, the agency said.
The operation, code-named Sudden Fall, was launched when a student died of a cocaine overdose a year ago, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. “A sad commentary is that when one of these individuals was arrested, he inquired as to whether or not his arrest and incarceration would have an effect on his becoming a federal law enforcement officer," said a DEA agent.
