The news is out: [DURHAM, N.C. — Nearly two dozen people, including current and former students at the University of North Carolina, Duke and Appalachian State, have been charged in connection with the investigation of a large-scale drug ring, local and federal law enforcement officials announced Thursday.
Many of the 21 people charged were connected with the Phi Gamma Delta, Kappa Sigma and Beta Theta Pi fraternal organizations, officials said. The investigation is continuing, and more charges are possible.
“I want to make this clear,” Martin said outside the Sheriff’s Office in Hillsborough. “This was not the situation where you have single users — a 19-year-old sipping a beer or you have someone who is taking a puff of a joint on the back porch of a frat house. These are 21 hardened drug dealers.”
The investigation revealed that the drug ring moved thousands of pounds of marijuana, several hundred kilograms of cocaine, LSD, Molly (MDMA), mushrooms, steroids, human growth hormones, Xanax and other narcotics through “very sophisticated methods,” Martin said.]
