"Federal agents and SDSU police culminated a yearlong investigation into drug dealing around campus yesterday, the first anniversary of a freshman's cocaine-related death."
"Ninety-six suspects, including 75 SDSU students, have been arrested on drug-related charges as a result of the undercover operation, launched after Jenny Poliakoff, 19, was found dead in her off-campus apartment after a night of celebration with her sorority."
"An early-morning roundup of 18 of the suspects had the campus in an uproar yesterday. Students and staff members traded updates about what was going on at Cox Arena, where agents processed and questioned dozens of people. In addition to the arrests, authorities seized 4 pounds of cocaine, 50 pounds of marijuana, $60,000 in cash, three handguns and other drugs and paraphernalia."
"As the investigation was unfolding, the campus dealt with another drug-related death. An autopsy showed that Mesa College student Kurt Baker died Feb. 24 at an SDSU fraternity from oxycodone and alcohol poisoning."
Staff writers Tony Manolatos, Angelica Martinez and Debbi Farr Baker and library researchers Erin Hobbs and Beth Wood contributed to this report.
