Southaven Narcotics unit alleges thirty nine year old Denise Annette Kovach and Larry George Lackl weren't just selling molly's locally; they were part of an Internet drug ring that was selling molly's all over the country. Southaven' P.D.'s Narcotic's unit says that after working with an informant and making some buys, they were stunned. "We didn't know that it was this large of an operation at the time, but we didn't know they were shipping packages through the mail," according to Southaven Narcotic's Unit Captain Steve Stewart.
Investigators say the last shipment to arrive was six kilos of molly's and Kovach and Lachl purchased the molly's from an Internet website using bit coins or Internet money and software that hid their computer's I.P. address. "We did the search of their residence and we actually seized their computers and from seizing their computers we were able to trace their e-mails and things like that," said Stewart.
Investigators allege that Kovach and Lackl were using multiple post offices in Tennessee and Mississippi to distribute the molly shipments. "My understanding is the kilos that they were paying for were costing them six thousand dollars per kilo and then if you break that down to a street value for each gel cap costs you from anywhere from ten to fifteen dollars so you are talking a lot of money depending on how they sell it," according to Captain Steve Stewart.
Southaven's Narcotics Unit tells FOX13 News Kovach and Lackl broke the larger shipments down and distributed them to places all over the country. The danger we are told with molly's is in the potency. "The problem is you've got different chemists making different molly's different ways, I mean you could take two molly's one week and be fine and you could take two the next week and overdose," Stewart said.
