CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) _ Police at the University of Illinois have charged seven members of a fraternity with drug offenses after a yearlong investigation.

University police detective Sgt. Joe McCullough tells The (Champaign) News-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1jsynuq) that since April of last year the department had been using informants to buy marijuana and Ecstasy from members of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity.

Officers conducted a raid Thursday night on the fraternity’s house, where several members live.

McCullough says the searches turned up Ecstasy pills, suspected LSD, marijuana, magic mushrooms and empty nitrous oxide cartridges. Drug paraphernalia and cash were also seized.

Charges were filed Friday against seven members. Most were charged with possession. One faces charges of possession with intent to distribute.

The fraternity’s national office did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment Saturday.
