Columbia University Drug Ring Busted?

A Columbia University Drug Ring has been busted. Five students at Columbia University in New York were arrested and accused of selling drugs at fraternity houses and other on-campus residences.

The bust was part of "Operation Ivy League." Each of the five students in the apparently well-coordinated network allegedly specialized in selling a certain type of drug. Undercover New York Police Department officers made 31 purchases from the students, totaling nearly $11,000.

Also arrested in "Operation Ivy League" were three people not affiliated with the University who were identified by police as the students' suppliers.

What are the names of the students who were busted in the drug ring and why did they do it?
Were they able to make a lot of money out of this?
What type of drugs did they sell?

One of the students who was arrested was a Gates Millennium Scholar from Georgia, a poet and party promoter. Another was the salutatorian of his high school class and is currently enrolled in Columbia University’s School of Engineering and Applied Science. A third was a member of the university’s student council, and another competed on the fencing team.

22-year-old Michael Wymbs and 20-year-olds Chris Coles, Harrison David, Adam Klein, and Jose Stephan Perez are all expected to be rung up on drug charges today for selling drugs.

Undercover NYPD Narcotics officers made 31 purchases of a variety of drugs including cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy, Adderall and LSD starting in July from the students.

The majority of the sales, police said, took place in common areas and bedrooms at fraternities houses Alpha Epsilon Pi, Pi Kappa Alpha and Psi Upsilon.
