    A 33-year-old Voluntown man was arrested Wednesday on a six-count indictment charging him with selling designer drugs and LSD over the Internet.

    According to court documents and statements made in court, Aaron Mioduszewski distributed “controlled substance analogs,” often called designer drugs, through websites he operated, including [NOPARSE]eastcoastchems.com[/NOPARSE] and [NOPARSE]simfluxresources.com[/NOPARSE], between June 2011 and July 2012.

    According to the documents, when law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Mioduszewski’s home in July 2012, they recovered large quantities of various designer drugs, as well as LSD.

    Federal law prohibits sale of chemicals similar to controlled substances if they’re intended for human consumption.

    The indictment charges Mioduszewski with four counts of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of controlled substance analogs, one count of possession with intent to distribute controlled substance analogs, and one count of possession with the intent to distribute LSD.

    A federal grand jury in Hartford returned the indictment on Nov. 5, and Mioduszewski was arrested Wednesday at his residence. He appeared Wednesday in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Donna F. Martinez and is being held pending a hearing on Friday.

    If convicted, Mioduszewski faces a maximum 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million on each count.

    Acting Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deidre M. Daly stressed that an indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. Charges are only allegations and a defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. This matter is being investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Tactical Diversion Squad in Worcester, Mass., and is being prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Natasha Dye.

    Man Charged With Selling "Designer Drugs" Over The Internet, Voluntown Man Posts Bail

    VOLUNTOWN — A 33-year-old man accused last week of selling "designer drugs" over the Internet and possessing LSD has posted bail, the U.S. Attorney's office said Monday.


    Aaron Mioduszewski, of Voluntown, posted $150,000 bond after a hearing Friday. A condition of his release is that he live with his father, said Thomas Carson, spokesman.

    Mioduszewski was charged with four counts of possession with intent to distribute and distribution of controlled-substance analogues as well as one count of possession with intent to distribute controlled substance analogues, and one count of possession with the intent to distribute LSD, the release states.

    According to a release from the U.S. Attorney's office, Mioduszewski allegedly used two different websites to distribute various controlled substance analogues — synthetic drugs that are created to be similar to controlled substances and are illegal if intended for human consumption. The substances are commonly known as "designer drugs."

    When law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Mioduszewski's home in July 2012, they recovered large quantities of various controlled-substance analogues, as well as LSD, the release states.

    A federal grand jury in Hartford returned the indictment on Nov. 5, and Mioduszewski was arrested Nov. 13 at his home, according to the release. He appeared in federal court Wednesday afternoon and was ordered detained pending a hearing on Nov. 15.

    If convicted, Mioduszewski faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million on each count, the release states.
