Middlesex man to serve 8 years for smuggling, pushing molly
The second of two defendants who brought in four kilograms of molly from China, to get it onto the streets of New Jersey, heads to prison for eight years.
Thomas Seymore, 38, of Carteret, was sentenced in a Newark federal courtroom Tuesday for his guilty plea to one count of conspiring to distribute ethylone, according to the office of New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman.
Seymore was also ordered to serve three years of supervised release. His co-defendant, Michael Correa, 33, of Rahway, was sentenced in December to four years, nine months for his guilty plea.
According to investigators, the pair devised the plan in June 2014, having received the Schedule I drug and stored it in Teaneck.
Ethylone, also called bath salts, stimulates the central nervous system and can trigger hallucinations.
The investigation entailed agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
