Albany State employee and students arrested for drugs

September 28, 2007

Albany -- An Albany State University employee and two students have been arrested for selling drugs on campus. Students alerted Campus Police that drugs were being sold in their student center.

45 year old Debra Berry, who was the game room manager at the Albany State student center, was arrested on campus Thursday. Also arrested were two students, 25 year old Moncrief Hart and 20 year old Christopher Henderson.

All three face eight drug charges, including distribution and conspiracy.

A.S.U. Police Chief Roberson Brown said the three had been selling ecstasy, marijuana, and crack cocaine at the student center. Students told Officers about the drug sales in March. Albany St. University Police Chief Roberson Brown said "I did a little investigation by getting an undercover officer to go in and do an initial buy. And the first day the officer was there was able to buy something from the suspect."  

 Chief Brown said Berry has been suspended without pay pending an employment hearing. The two students have been suspended pending a student tribunal.

 All three were indicted by a Federal Grand Jury before Thursday's arrest, because of the amount of drugs they are charged with selling.
