Drug bust nabs 17 TCU students, including football players
A drug bust on and around the Texas Christian University campus in Fort Worth, Texas, Wednesday morning led to the arrest of 17 current students, school officials said.
During a news conference Wednesday morning, officials said those arrested "engaged in hand-to-hand delivery" of drugs with undercover narcotics officers both on and off campus.
According to TCU Chief of Police Steve McGee, the investigation began six months ago after multiple tips were received from students and parents.
Those arrested were selling marijunana, cocaine, the club drug "molly" (some in powder form, some in pill form), acid and prescription drugs including Xanex, hydrocodone and others similar to OxyContin, McGee said.
