Update on the War On Drugs
21 students arrested in U. of I. drug crackdown
Tribune staff report
May 2, 2009
Twenty-one University of Illinois students, including some from the Chicago suburbs, were arrested this week in connection with a yearlong investigation into drug dealing on campus.
Students were arrested Wednesday and Thursday in two dorms, at three fraternities, a sorority and at several off-campus houses and apartments in Urbana and Champaign. Four non-students also were arrested by U. of I. police on drug-related charges. Those arrested were not all working together, said university police Lt. Roy Acree.
"I would hope it would send a message to students that if you are selling drugs, there is a good chance you're going to get caught," Acree said. He said officers had investigated campus drug dealing, through undercover purchases and other methods, since the fall semester.
Police seized 180 grams of marijuana, traces of cocaine, anti-anxiety pills, $3,100, two vehicles, three flat-screen televisions and two laptop computers, Acree said.
Most of the arrests were on suspicion of manufacturing and delivering marijuana, Acree said. The students could face disciplinary action, including possible expulsion from the university, said U. of I. spokeswoman Robin Kaler.
great job scrub policeman, im sure everybody is thankful you spent a year and prob a ridic amount of $ to get roughly 6 ounces of weed off the mean campus streets of illinois ;) that's 9 grams and $150 a person.... war on drugs owns!!
its campus police
to them it might seem like a million dollar bust and they're probably excited with getting this case rather than breaking up a frat party or checking if the students have valid parking passes
hehe nothing like the traces of cocaine written in there, i also like how they put the ridic small amount in grams, not ounces, to make it sound bigger
