View Full Version : Illegal Drug Probe Linked To Online Dxm Supplier

07-29-2003, 07:36 AM
A Carnegie Mellon University student arrested recently at Pittsburgh International Airport for drug possession has become embroiled in what court papers describe as a "large-scale" federal drug investigation spanning the nation.

An attorney for 20-year-old Mark Parraway, however, said the arrest could be a "very big foul-up" and claimed his client was transporting legal substances as part of a legitimate business.

A further search of Parraway's luggage yielded a plastic bag weighing 790 grams containing suspected Ecstasy, according to a field test by a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agent. Also confiscated were several empty baggies and a digital scale.

Parraway told police that through an online company, he buys large quantities of a substance called dextromethorphan, repackages it and sells it.

"Our position is this is legitimate business," Parraway's attorney, William Krzton, said. "At the end of the day, this could be a very big foul-up."

A google search for the supplier bring up nothing.. I wonder if they 1) Used the real supplier name 2) Exist 3) Got closed down by the DEA or some shit.

Yeah carrying 790grams of DXM on an airplane is a smart idea. Makes me doubt the screening process at Carnegie Mellon.

MBEtech(?) used to be located in PA. I don't remember if that was the correct name. They used to have real good prices for everything way back when.

Anyway, what I want draw attention to is after reading the whole article I noticed:

The affidavit supporting the request for a search warrant cited a DEA chemist as saying "he is aware of a large-scale nationwide investigation involving one of the companies that Parraway admitted was his source of supply."

Investigation, uh oh. hah
