Bros Behaving Badly: Tulane's Kappa Sigma Frat Suspended After Drug Bust, Newspaper Theft


A pair of Tulane frat house antics were deemed unpledgeworthy by the frat's big brothers. First, a Feb. 21 federal drug bust at the Kappa Sigma house put $10,000 worth of drugs on ice. Then, two of the brotherhood's pledges confessed to stealing more than 2,000 copies of the university’s student newspaper splashed with the headline hours after its Thursday afternoon publication, according to the Tulane Hullabaloo. As a result of the incidents, the frat is under investigation, according to Kappa Sigma national overseers.


Tulane Frat House Bust Yields $10k in Drugs


A stash of psychedelics that was hoarded at a Tulane frat house is now in the hands of authorities. State Police seized $10,000 worth of drugs from the Kappa Sigma fraternity house at 627 Broadway St. Friday after a pair of students from the Uptown university accepted a fresh shipment from the fuzz. Jules Staib and Wyatt Silverman, both 19 and Tulane students, were arrested after they accepted a package containing 107 grams of ecstasy (MDMA) from undercover state police officers.
