LIU Post Students Arrested in Campus Drug Bust

Two students are charged with multiple felonies for selling "club drug."

Two students at Long Island University Post campus in Brookville were arrested Tuesday at 10 p.m. for allegedly possessing and selling a quantity of MDMA, or Ecstasy, according to the Nassau County Police Department.

Frank Catalano, 20, of Brooklyn, and Ryan Sloane, 20, of Westbury, were observed selling the substance, police said, and were arrested by the department's Asset Forfeiture Unit.

They are being charged with second- and third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, second-degree criminal possession of marijuana and fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, all felonies.

They will be arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Wednesday.

Erin, when I suggested these young men get a legal job, I was thinking about making some spending money. I wasn't suggesting a part time job would cover the full tuition at CW Post. In fact, if their business netted the $30,000 or more that it might cost to attend college for a year, it would be more than a small matter. If the only way they could afford to attend college was to sell drugs, something is very wrong. These "boys" are the ones who seem to have things backward.

Theres clearly no getting through. I'm sorry my world isn't a perfect place like your world is. And you should know people will do anything for money especially when its for their education. Sorry that they're the first people to make a mistake, but it wasn't done in any means to offend anyone or hurt anyone. So people need to stop making them out to be the worst people in the world. Yes they were wrong but its no ones business but their own, I'm sure they're dealing with enough that they don't need people bad mouthing them and acting as if they're the worst people in the world. The are much worse things going on in the world that people should be concerned with. And besides don't we teach children not to gossip, you people are worse than 15-year-old high school girls. Really, grow up!

Erin, you are getting through, but we disagree. As far as i'm concerned we've beat this issue to death. No more comments from me.

Interesting input nonetheless, and a worthwhile conversation at a time when our legal system's "war on drugs" is being increasingly scrutinized. Thank you all for your comments.

this has been going on for a good 20 years on every single college campus...massive amount of X.....and every other drug.....massive amounts.....some get caught,,,some dont...some are good people...... some are bad......but there are simple laws that should treat them like everyone else....I say no jail time....probably a big fine and 4 years probation....and most likely kicked out of school.....
