FAIRFIELD — A Millspaugh Road man was arrested on drug charges last week, following an investigation by local and federal officials.
Benny Palmieri, 28, ordered a “large amount” of GHB, commonly known as the date rape drug, and as well as crystal methamphetamine, according to the report. He was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance and one count each of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Federal authorities intercepted the parcel, police said, and discovered the drugs. The package was then sent on its way to Palmieri, but local police were waiting for him and took him into custody March 16 when he received the package.
Bond was set at $250,000 bond and he is scheduled to appear April 5 at state Superior Court in Bridgeport.
