Prosecutors Says Samuel Villeareal Supplied KU Basketball Players With Marijuana
Not surprised by this.
The drug testing for college athletes isn’t that great. They only test for weed around major events and even if you are caught it takes 3 positive tests before any real discipline is headed out, so unless they are caught red handed they can smoke as much as they like especially during the offseason.
Of course KU has no comment, but the Feds have a lot of evidence it appears.
An Overland Park man recently charged in a large-scale marijuana distribution ring allegedly supplied some players on the 2010-2011 University of Kansas basketball team, a federal prosecutor says.
In outlining Villeareal’s alleged role in the drug conspiracy, Assistant U.S. Attorney Terra Morehead told a federal magistrate that authorities seized $11,000 and an iPhone when they searched Villeareal’s house in May 2011.
She described him as a supplier of marijuana to a number of individuals, “including a number of Kansas University basketball players from the 2010-2011 season.”
“We know that because of the text messages we obtained from the iPhone and also from surveillance that was done throughout this investigation of Mr. Villeareal,” Morehead said, according to a transcript of the hearing obtained by The Star.
If you want to look on the bright side at least it wasn’t cocaine.
