    MONROE — The feds say they intercepted a Bronx man's shipment of the date-rape drug GHB at the Monroe post office, landing the sender in federal custody after a judge rejected his plea for release on bond.

    Justin Dollard, 36, is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute. He's accused of mailing two packages of the clear liquid, camouflaged in plastic bottles of Tropicana apple juice and Lipton Brisk iced tea. His new lawyer, Eugene Riccio, got his first look at the federal complaint against Dollard on Thursday. "I've just been retained in the matter, and I am unable to comment at this time," he said.
    Federal authorities say in court papers that the drug, known in party circles as "Good Hormones at Bedtime," "Georgia Home Boy" and other nicknames, was shipped through the mail in March. The shipper apparently didn't know that he was dealing with a confidential informant for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
    A complaint filed in U.S. District Court says that the confidential informant made contact with Dollard on the Internet. They swapped e-mails through an encrypted service called Hushmail. The complaint says that the seller told the customer, "I'm having a sale, 16 oz. for $110/with priority shipping & DC# (delivery confirmation number) included."
    On March 12, DEA agents followed Dollard from his Bronx apartment to a post office on the Grand Concourse, near Yankee Stadium, according to the complaint. On March 17 at the Monroe post office on Route 17M, another agent retrieved the four bottles of GHB in two separate packages. The confirmation numbers matched the ones that had been accepted for mailing in the Bronx.
    Dollard was arrested in late September, denied bond during a hearing earlier this month and remains in federal custody in Westchester County, waiting to hear when he'll next appear in U.S. District Court in White Plains.

    Thank you for posting this Insignius

    Please note that the way we post news has changed, because of our main news page. You can find the full instructions here.

    The most important changes are:


    • Articles are no longer posted in quotes.
    • The introduction of the article should be in bold.
    • Images should be added if possible and placed in the article, following the instructions linked to above and here.
    • Information about the article, like link, author, date should be posted below the article.
    • Your personal comments about the article can be posted either in quotes at the end of the article or in a separate post.
    • The news forums may contain news articles only
    • Make sure you include all the text from the original article. Don't just post the URL because web pages often disappear or get moved over time. Remove all unnecessary formatting from the text before posting. One easy way to do this is to paste the text into notepad or another text editor first, which will remove any formatting. Also try to remove picture captions, advertisement links and other text that doesn't belong to the body of the article.


    Please be so kind to review your articles and correct this.

    Further it may be good to know that recent articles with the highest thread ratings show up on the main news page. So without ratings, many people will not see it. So please rate news threads.

    The main news page is accessible from the tabs on the top of any DF page.

    A friend of mine thought this article was of particular interest due to the nature of its being a mail-order purchase, the use of encrypted email, and the relatively small amount in question.

    Cleaned it up a bit and edited per the new format which I was unaware of, thnks chiLL. ;) plz bring anything that still isn't right to my attention so I can have him address it, and he wanted me to mention that he got that PM and has been meaning to reply but is just busy. Hope all is well at that end and feel free to hit him up anytime.

    Peace
