DURHAM, N.H. (AP) – Nine members of a University of New Hampshire fraternity have been arrested following a drug raid at the fraternity house.

The nine men were arrested following a three-month long investigation by the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force, the Durham Police department and the UNH Police Department. The arrests took place after warrants were served at the Sigma Beta fraternity house on Tuesday night.

One student, Andrew Borges, 20, of Berkeley, Mass., was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. He was released on $15,000 personal recognizance bail.

David Mason, 19, of Newfields, N.H., was charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, and John Dold, 19, of Stratham, N.H., was charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. Both were released on $5,000 personal recognizance bail.

Six others were charged with possession of a controlled drug and unlawful possession of alcohol. All six were held on $800 personal recognizance bail.

University spokeswoman Kim Billings said that Sigma Beta has been put in interim suspension “pending an outcome from the UNH Office of Conduct and Mediation.”

As a result of the suspension, Sigma Beta is “denied all rights and privileges of a recognized student organization, including loss of rights and privileges of membership in the UNH Inter-fraternity Council.”

The fraternity has 10 days to appeal the suspension.
