— A woman who reported being sexually assaulted at a fraternity house on the campus of North Carolina State University told police she saw someone selling drugs and witnessed several fights, including someone being thrown through a window, according to a newly released search warrant.

Campus police investigating the March 1 case said the woman reported that at least 10 people bought cocaine, acid, ecstasy and clonazepam – commonly used to treat epilepsy and ease anxiety – from a specific individual whom she saw take the substances from a desk in his room at the Alpha Tau Omega house, at 1402 Varsity Drive.

In an affidavit requesting permission to search that individual's room, a campus police officer noted that he smelled marijuana coming from open windows at the house later that night.

The warrant does not indicate if the individual is a suspect in the sexual assault case. That allegedly happened around 3 a.m. Investigators have previously said there had been a party at the house.

Alpha Tau Omega's national chief executive officer, Wynn Smiley, has said the fraternity is taking the claim seriously and is conducting its own investigation.

A campus police spokesman said Thursday that police are still investigating all the allegations and that no one has been charged.

    The evil, no victim crime, of SELLING "drugs"! One being a prescription drug. Go protest your pharmacy while you're at it.
