The Penn State chapter of the Kappa Delta Rho fraternity is under police investigation after the school discovered two private Facebook pages containing photos of members involved in hazing, drug deals, and women passed out from drinking.

Campus police were tipped off after one of the woman photographed discovered her picture on a page titled “Covert Business Transactions,” WJAC TV reports. After the page was shut down, another, titled “2.0” was reportedly created in its place.

According to police, many of the photos showed women who were naked or partially clothed. Some were unconscious and therefore unaware they were being photographed. An estimated 150 people had access to the private pages.

According to the search warrant, police were able to grab 20 photos before the frat wiped all the remaining evidence off their computers. “The images are disturbing, I will tell you that,” said State College Assistant Chief John Gardner.

The University says it is taking the allegations “very seriously” and asking anyone who might have been victimized to come forward.

The Penn State chapter of the frat has been suspended and will be forced to undergo a "conduct review session" after cops complete their investigation, says the school’s interfraternity council. Kappa Delta Rho has so far declined to comment.
