Arizona-Based Research Chemical Seller Sentenced to Probation

A federal judge sentenced an Arizona man to five years of probation for selling research chemicals online.
United States District Judge Arthur J. Schwab sentenced Jeremy Brooks, 31, to five years of probation for one count of conspiracy to smuggle misbranded drugs into the United States and introduce them into interstate commerce. The judge also ordered Brooks to forfeit the $106,000 he had earned through his drug trafficking operation.

Vials of clonazolam



According to court documents, Brooks–alongside co-conspirator Justin Ash–sold clonazolam, diclazepam, flubromazolam, etizolam, and similar research chemicals through the website DomesticRcs.com. The site, known on Reddit and other forums as “DRC,” advertised unscheduled thienodiazepines, triazolobenzodiazepines, and other benzodiazepine derivatives.



An early description of DomesticRcs from Brooks:
DomesticRcs is the leading research chemicals supplier in the United States. At our online store, you can buy popular research chemicals like Etizolam, Clonazolam, Flubromazolam, and Diclazepam in powder, liquid and pellets form.

DomesticRcs.com listed all products as “for research purposes only.” However, Brooks admitted that the majority of his customers had purchased the chemicals for the purpose of ingestion. “Brooks, Ash, or others acting at their direction communicated directly with individual customers about, among other things, the effects of the drugs when used for personal consumption,” United States Attorney Scott W. Brady said in an announcement.

Earlier this year, Judge Schwab sentenced Ash to 24 months in prison as well the forfeiture of approximately $780,000 earned through DomesticRcs.com.
Hiding behind the “for research purposes only” label failed to shield the operators of the site.
Although DomesticRcs.com is now inaccessible, the company’s WordPress account is still active.

Forget "that" guy, how about the three idiots who did everything wrong? Just look at Arnold. If that's not a "deer caught in the headlights" gaze, I don't know what is! This is "Darknet Vending 101" - An example of all the wrong ways to ship.

Who would have ever guessed that burnt up junkie would be in to Meth and Heroin? I can't believe someone looking that fucking stupid would arouse suspicion and not be a super genius.

Stuffing envelopes wearing latex gloves in front of a post office? Really? Buying postal labels online using Gmail? Really? Buying special stamps and posting from the same office? Really? Using Coinbase to cash out drug money? Really?

I bought from him once. I ordered a gram or so of meth. He sent me a gram or so of Heroin. I trashed the heroin. Def not into that shit. At least he fixed his mistake. Shit was mediocre at best. He went in and out of vacation mode shortly after. Guess I got lucky on that one.

It’s sad, I worked with Arnold for awhile and he was one of the nicest guys I’ve met. Crazy seeing this shit blow up and hearing it all, he got messed up in shit he just didn’t know about it seems.
