SDSU may as well stand for Sold Drugs to Some Undercover after 18 students were arrested today on drug charges. Nearly 100 people -- including 75 students -- have been stung in Operation Sudden Fall, a five-month DEA investigation on the San Diego campus.

Agents were involved in more than 130 drug purchases and seizures over five months, the DEA said. Among the drugs seized were 4 pounds of cocaine, 50 pounds of marijuana, 48 marijuana plants and 350 ecstasy pills. Police also confiscated one shotgun, three semi-automatic pistols, three sets of brass knuckles and $60,000. -- Bloomberg
