Information on fraternity investigation

Dartmouth College Office of Public Affairs
Posted 06/09/06 • (603) 646-3661

Dear Members of the Dartmouth Community:

You may have read or heard about a recent police search of Alpha Delta fraternity. While I cannot add much to what has already been reported, I do want to make sure that you have the facts as we know them. I would also like to ask for your assistance in asking people to avoid speculation about this situation.

On June 8, 2006, the Hanover Police Department executed a search warrant at the Alpha Delta fraternity house. The nature of the police investigation is confidential, under sealed court documents. Public police reports indicate that the primary focus of the investigation is not drug-related, but it is my understanding that one student has been arrested on ancillary drug charges.

Dartmouth officials are cooperating with the police investigation, and we have also reached out to provide information and assistance to all of the students who may be affected by the investigation. The College is concerned about the well-being of its students and organizations and we are responding to this situation in a manner that is consistent with our various obligations under state and federal law.

Questions about the investigation should be directed to the Hanover Police Department.

Jim Larimore
Dean of the College
