The following is a Press Release from the Louisiana State Police Department:
Earlier this month, investigators with the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations initiated an investigation into the shipment of illicit drugs into Lake Charles.
After an investigation, police learned that a package containing MDMA as well as MDPV (a synthetic stimulant, also known as bath salts) was being shipped to an address in Lake Charles. Based on credible information, a search warrant was obtained.
On June 26, an agent with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service successfully delivered the package to an address in Lake Charles where Daniel Oliver signed for the package. Troopers, as well as agents with U.S. Homeland Security Investigations and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, converged on the residence and served the search warrant. Investigators recovered three kilos of bath salts with an estimated street value of $134,000.
