RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has suspended three fraternities linked to a drug trafficking ring that federal prosecutors say funneled large amounts of drugs into three college campuses.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Greensboro announced this week that 21 people were charged in connection to the ring following an investigation by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

UNC Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz says the findings prompted the university to take “swift action.”

The suspended fraternities were the campus chapters of Phi Gamma Delta, Kappa Sigma and Beta Theta Pi.
