Massive drug bust linked to U of I frat house

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (FOX 32 News) -

Seven students at the University of Illinois were arrested in a major drug bust Thursday night.

Police say the arrests were made after police searched two senior student homes linked to the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. Investigators say they found more than 400 doses of ecstasy, LSD and cocaine during their late-night search of the homes.

According to FOX 55 Illinois, detectives had been tracking the fraternity and building their case for some time. Officers said they were not surprised by what they found.

"Cannabis is by far the largest drug used on campus, and MDMA is getting up there." Junior Reggie Jansen told FOX, "I haven't run into it. I mean you run into weed every once in a while but I haven't run into any of those hardcore drugs."

Officers say the amount of drugs seized was so large, police have not yet been able to put a street value on it. Most of the seven students arrested are facing felony drug charges.
