There was a drug bust at San Diego State?


I hadn't heard.

(It's only been all over the freakin' news for the last 12 hours...so y'all can stop emailing me to blog on it...I'm stuck in Yuma, Arizona on business)

Yes, friends, I did hear about the big drug bust at SDSU. Props to all my Aztec friends...that is some interesting commerce they be teachin' on Montezuma Mesa:

SAN DIEGO – A year-long investigation at San Diego State University has resulted in 96 people being arrested on drug- related charges, including 75 students, officials said Tuesday.

Eighteen SDSU students were taken into custody Tuesday morning and other related arrests have taken place over the past year, San Diego State University Police Chief John Browning said.

Drugs AND Guns! Those frat boys wuz serious!

Items seized in the investigation included $100,000 worth of drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy pills, mushrooms, methamphetamine, and illicit prescription drugs. One shotgun, three semi-automatic pistols and about $60,000 in cash also were seized, Browning said.

Drug sales occurred on numerous locations across the campus, including in an alley next to the Theta Chi fraternity house, according to court records.

So what's the harm? Just a some free enterprise with your partying, right? Nobody gets hurt...

Not exactly:

The investigation was launched after a student died of a cocaine overdose a year ago.

Shirley Jennifer Poliakoff, 19, was found dead on the morning of May 6, 2007, in her Aztec Corner apartment. She was a member of Alpha Phi sorority.

A county Medical Examiner's investigator said Poliakoff died from acute cocaine and ethanol intoxication. The death was ruled accidental.

Dude. I was in Birmingham, AL when this all went down. I was more dumbfounded by all the national press coverage by the Turds staring at a tele-prompter than by the bust itself. It may come as a surprise to some rube living in flyover country, but, you could substitute SDSU with say, Chico State, Fresno State, Long Beach State, or even (gasp!) UCLA and it would come as no surprise to me. The SDPD and the DEA needed 5 months to make this bust happen? How lame are those guys?!
