Sterling Heights man sentenced on drug charge
    #2467082 - 03/24/04 12:01 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)


A Sterling Heights man will spend two months in prison for his role in a scheme to import hallucinogenic mushrooms from Europe. 
Z.K., 21, was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Judge David W. McKeague. In addition to his prison time he will also face a year of probation and two months on an electronic tether, the judge's office said.

K., who pleaded guilty in December to using wire transfers to import mushrooms, was indicted along with J.R.B. II, 22, of Clinton Township. K. admitted that he sent enough money to purchase 30 pounds of mushrooms overseas.

At the time of their guilty pleas, U.S. Attorney Margaret Chiara said the two college students admitted their role in the affair.

A former Fraser High School swim team member, B. pleaded guilty to conspiracy to import the drugs and explained that he set up the system through an e-mail account and Western Union money transfers.

An investigation into the incident was launched in June 2002 when U.S. Customs inspectors seized three packages from the Netherlands containing approximately six pounds of psilocybin mushrooms. The packages were addressed for shipment to Fraser, Portage and Cannonsburg.

Authorites believe that at least 100 people in 26 other states were in business with the same sources in Europe. Chiara said a federal probe into other suspects is continuing.

Officials said B. established an e-mail account as a point of contact for drug buyers looking to obtain the mushrooms ? which have a similar hallucinogenic effects as LSD ? and distributed the drugs to others. The account was used from fall of 2000 to July 2002.

B. faces up to 20 years in prison when he's sentenced April 16.
