A Pelham is accused of smuggling chemical ingredients from overseas that are used to make the club drug Molly.
Daren Lee Moshe, 22, smuggled dozens of packages into the U.S. containing chemicals used to make Molly, according to federal prosecutors. Moshe is accused of using fake identification and a bogus bank account to rent multiple post office boxes, including one at a UPS Store in White Plains.
According to documents, border patrol agents at JFK International Airport inspected one of Moshe's shipments and found alpha-PVP. During a 9-month investigation, officials determined that Moshe might have received as many as 57 packages containing alpha-PVP, which can be used to replicate Molly.
The drug was made popular in songs by musicians such as Kanye West and Miley Cyrus.
John Como, who lives across the street from Moshe and went to high school with the accused smuggler, remembers Moshe as a quiet guy. "He was never someone I would look at as a negative person," says Como.
Moshe was released to his father on $50,000 bail.
