BROCKPORT, N.Y. — College at Brockport campus police say they’ve detained more than a dozen people for questioning in an ongoing investigation into possible hazing and drug activity.
A search warrant was executed late Wednesday night at a home on Monroe Avenue, near the college’s campus.
Taken out of the home were paddles, framed photos, tables and other items in bags.
College officials says those detained are part of an unrecognized fraternity that calls itself “The Delts.”
Officials say the Zeta Psi Chapter of Delta Sigma Phi national fraternity was revoked by the National Fraternity’s Grand Council and shut down by Brockport college in 2001.
It’s not clear exactly what the hazing accusations are at this point, but university police say this investigation has been going on for months.
“For the students’ safety here tonight, with everything going on in the world right now with hazing, we take it very seriously here at the college,” said Daniel Vasile, Chief of University Police at Brockport. “There could be not only charges, but student code of conduct violations as well here with the college.”
No arrests have been announced at this point.
The college at Brockport released a statement saying in part, “We regularly educate and warn students and their parents of the dangers associated with such unrecognized groups and will continue to do so. We have zero tolerance for this group’s behavior.”
