Police arrested 11 students early Sunday morning following a raid at a University of New Hampshire fraternity house that was the culmination of a lengthy drug investigation, which happened to coincide with the report of a sexual assault there early the same day.

Officers converged on the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity house at 66 Main St. in the center of downtown around 6 a.m. and confiscated a variety of narcotics, including marijuana, prescriptions and drugs that need to be tested before their identity can be confirmed, UNH's Executive Director of Public Safety Paul Dean said.

Nine students were arrested on drug charges and two more for disorderly conduct after they allegedly tried to interfere with officers who were searching the home and arresting residents, Durham police Deputy Chief Rene Kelley said.

All of those arrested are ATO fraternity brothers, Dean said, though two of them lived at 42 Garrison Road and were taken into custody there.
