Ecstasy Mailed in supplement containers
(West Palm Beach FL.) -- A man who mailed the party drug ecstasy inside of a container of bodybuilding supplement back in February was on trial in a West Palm Beach courtroom Monday. 27 year old Vicente Loyola pleaded guilty Monday to one count of importation of a controlled substance. Loyola was accused of mailing 2 packages of MDMA, better known as ecstasy that was intercepted by Federal Drug Agents after being tipped off by a confidential source who agreed to cooperate with authorities. Loyola faces a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment and a fine of up to $1 million dollars. His sentencing is set for Oct. 21.
Bar Scam Theft
(Fort Lauderdale FL.) -- A South Florida man had cash and a watch worth $12,500 dollars stolen from him in what appears to be another case of bar hopping women scamming men they go home with. 42 year old Travis Kania of Fort Lauderdale met the woman at Blondies on June 10th and invited her back to his apartment in the 200 block of South Birch Road. When she left, she took his Breitling Bentley watch and $700 dollars in cash. 34 year old Richa Nickole Birdow was arrested Sunday on a grand theft charge. Police have seen a rise in similar cases and are warning men to be wise and to watch out. 13 men have reported that from December through April they had been ripped off by women they met at city bars and restaurants. Many of the victims believe they were drugged before their cash, phones, watches, credit cards and handguns were taken.
