Some not very Christian behavior took place on the campus of Texas Christian University recently, as a drug bust on Wednesday morning led to the arrest of 17 current students.
In a six-month long investigation, police found that students sold drugs to undercover narcotics officers both on and off campus.
According to Steve McGee, TCU Chief of Police:
“There is no doubt, all of those arrested today, are drug dealers. These individuals engaged in hand-to-hand delivery, for money, with undercover narcotics agents. We will continue to work proactively to curtail drug use on the TCU campus.”
McGee said the investigation began six months ago after multiple tips were received from students and parents. He continued:
“This shows that TCU students, staff and the community will not tolerate this kind of behavior on the TCU campus.”
The drugs found to be sold on TCU campus included marijuana, cocaine, Molly (ecstasy in powder form), ecstasy in pill form, acid and prescription drugs including Xanax, hydrocodone and others similar to Oxycontin.
Investigators have not yet released the names of those arrested Wednesday, but did say those implicated were all current students and included four members of the TCU football team and at least one member of a fraternity.
Officials said the investigation is ongoing and that more arrests are possible.
