Four University at Buffalo students have been arrested on felony drug charges in the city's University Heights neighborhood. 

Police seized more than a half-ounce cocaine, eight ounces of ecstasy and other pills, nine pounds of marijuana, along with $64,000 in cash Friday night.

Police Commissioner Derenda says an illegally parked car on West Northrup Place in the University District led to the arrests after the drugs were on display in plain view of officers.
