Take one down, pass it around, Holy Cow the cops are here!
Approximately 100 individuals face charges following a raid on a Rowan University fraternity house in which nearly 42 cases of beer were seized, police said today.
The late Thursday night operation was part of a planned sting conducted by borough police and Rowan University public safety based on information that the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity chapter here was selling alcohol both without a license and to individuals who are under the state’s minimum drinking age of 21, said Joe Cordona, university spokesman.
During a five-hour period, police:
• seized 998 cans of beer and an unspecified amount of cash.
• charged seven people with underage possession of alcohol.
• charged six with obstruction of justice.
• accused two of providing false information to authorities.
• charged one individual with sale of alcoholic beverages without a license.
• took two juveniles into custody for their “safety” due to their level of intoxication.
Who’da thunk it, beer at a frat party!
