Gang Selling Drugs to Cal State San Marcos Students

Narcotics detectives say a street gang has set up shop in a luxury apartment building next to Cal State San Marcos to sell drugs to students.

Sheriff's Sgt. Gary Floyd says about a dozen San Diego gang members have moved into the 568-unit Prominence Luxury Apartment Homes and they are selling marijuana, methamphetamine and Ecstasy. Many students live in the complex.

Deputies have made seven arrests since late February, but the sergeant says the gang is still active. The gang members are believed to be part of a southeast San Diego gang forced out of town by an injunction.

Floyd's comments came this week as authorities exposed a massive San Diego State University drug-dealing operation.
