DEA chemist testifies in LSD case

By Steve Fry
The Capital-Journal

Two men convicted of trafficking in LSD had enough of the finished product and related chemicals stored in a former missile base on the outskirts of Wamego to market millions of doses of the hallucinogenic drug, according to a Drug Enforcement Administration chemist.

William Leonard Pickard, 57, and Clyde Apperson, 48, were to be sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court, but at the end of the court day witnesses called for the sentencing hearing hadn't finished testifying. The sentencing hearing will resume on Monday.

Pickard and Apperson were convicted on March 31 by a federal court jury of conspiracy and possession of LSD with intent to distribute more than 10 grams of LSD. Pickard's defense attorney, William Rork, Thursday questioned federal officials' calculations on the quantity of LSD and related chemicals stored at the former missile base.

Law enforcement officials searched the missile base on Oct. 31, 2000, with the consent of the man renting the former missile silo, and found evidence of 90 pounds of LSD; 52 pounds of a byproduct of LSD; 214.5 pounds of a precursor substance of LSD; and almost 42 pounds of another precursor, DEA chemist Timothy McKibben testified.

McKibben said millions of doses of LSD could be made with the LSD, byproduct and precursors. For example, the 42 pounds of one precursor could make between 90 million doses and 248 million doses, he said.

Reduced to "LSD in pure form," the LSD and its related chemicals at the Wamego site equaled 198.9 grams, or a little more than 7 ounces, McKibben said.

For much of Thursday, Rork closely questioned McKibben about how the calculations were made. Rork repeatedly challenged how McKibben knew a five-gallon plastic gasoline can containing a precursor was full. And another time, Rork asked what part of a plastic bag McKibben removed to get a sample for testing.

Testimony will resume Monday before U.S. District Judge Richard Rogers.

woah man.... Are they exagerating the numbers here? If so i can see why there has been big shortage in doses up until this summer.

This is the only time I really feel alive.

They always up the numbers... you get busted with one joint and by the time it gets to court you had a few pounds...

Just another spore in the wind.

I've been picking up on that lately after reading afew articles. "He had 1.5 grams, this is enough to roll 15-20 joints and can be sold on the streets anywhere from $70 to $100. Alot of numbers dont add up, they lie so badly.
