SDSU drug bust

SDSU drug bust: 100 people are arrested in a sting operation at San Diego State University in California. Police have seized drugs and guns from them.

Strangely, among arrested 75 are student of criminal justice or homeland security degrees. SDSU drug bust is the result of allmost one year long investigation which started in May 2007 when a student died because of overdose.

"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.
