Federal drug and gun charges levied against Chico State student

A Chico State student was indicted in federal court last Thursday (July 24) for importing and selling drugs.

According to a press release from the Butte Interagency Narcotics Task Force (BINTF), Ross Christopher Sullivan was originally arrested back in mid-May for allegedly selling Xanax and ecstasy. He was taken into custody at his off-campus apartment, where BINTF agents found a loaded AR-15 as well as a loaded .45-caliber handgun.

Sullivan pleaded not guilty in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District in Sacramento. According to the Chico Enterprise-Record, he also pleaded not guilty in Butte County Superior Court to charges related to possession and sales, as well as possession while armed with loaded firearms.

Homeland Security Investigations and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service aided BINTF in the investigation.
