Pa. AG: Drug ring busted selling on campuses

    State prosecutors say they’ve broken up a drug distribution ring that sold cocaine, marijuana and prescription pills on college campuses and around Philadelphia.

    The state attorney general’s office yesterday charged 25 people in connection with an operation they say sold drugs on the campuses of Temple, West Chester and Cheyney universities.


    Authorities say the charges result from a grand jury investigation probing cocaine sales in suburban Chester County.

    Cheyney President Michelle Howard-Vital says one of those arrested is a student at the school.
