CBS News reported, that ” two Drexel University students are among five people arrested in connection with what investigators say was a million-dollar LSD ring that was operating on the university’s campus.”
A recent arrest in Upper Moreland led the Philadelphia DA’s office to the LSD ring that apparently operated at Drexel for more than a year.
“The first informant that we spoke to from Upper Moreland put us in contact with the Drexel student who was the supplier for the Upper Moreland individual,” Brian Grady, head of the Dangerous Drug Offender Unit in the DA’s office to CBS News. “That Drexel student immediately began to cooperate with us as well, and led us into his source of supply, which was another Drexel student. He led us to his suppliers.”
The DA’s office also confiscated $10,000 in cash and 9,500 hits of acid with a street value of more than $28,000.
Drexel University released the following statement:
“Drexel University has a zero tolerance policy for any type of illegal activity and takes immediate disciplinary action, including criminal prosecution. Drexel University Police fully cooperated with the District Attorney’s Dangerous Drug Offender Unit, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and Philadelphia Police, resulting in the arrests of five people connected to an LSD ring operating in University City.”
