Calif. -- A couple of California State University San Marcos students were arrested Thursday and booked into the Vista Detention Facility on drug charges.

Brandon Polonia, 21, and Corey Hobbs, 24, are also members of Tau Kappa Epsilon, an fraternity not recognized by CSUSM.

Two search warrants were served by University police and other local law enforcement officials at two homes in San Marcos and Oceanside Thursday morning. Investigators had been looking into alleged criminal activity by the TKE's before serving the warrants.

During the searches, police seized marijuana, cocaine, LSD, ecstasy and steroids, just to name a few.

University police had begun their criminal investigation of the faternity in August, prompted by a report of a sexual assault at one of their off-campus parties. A DNA test cleared a fraternity member of guilt in that assault case.

There were also several reports to police stating TKE members were providing illegal drugs and alcohol to minors, as well as intimidating victims and witnesses.

University police are not ruling out the possibility there may be more arrests in the near future.

Polonia's bail has been set at $25,000, and Hobb's bail is set at $20,000."
