GREENVILLE -

The national headquarters of Sigma Phi Epsilon ordered an ECU fraternity house to cease all operations, after three students were arrested for having drugs and other illegal items.

According to the Daily Reflector, the national chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon ordered the fraternity house, located on 505 E. fifth street, to stop all activities immediately. The three suspects were suspended from the fraternity as well.

Police arrested the three students: Levi Coleman, 21, James Mead, 22, and Collin King, 21, on Wednesday. According to officers, they found 49 grams of marijuana that had been packaged for resale, three Adderall pills, and a dozen stolen street signs at the suspect's fraternity house. A digital scale and $80 in cash were also seized.

Police said they searched the fraternity house because they saw the stolen signs hanging in the home while they were patrolling East 5th Street.

All three students were charged with several drug offenses. They were each jailed under $25,000 secured bonds.
