    Liquid Research Busted...

    I got this from Anabolic -Planet and AnabolicFreakz...

    Tuesday night raid in a quiet Metairie neighborhood was part of an investigation into alleged steroid sales over the Internet, according to Jefferson Parish officials.


    Sheriff Harry Lee said Edward and Natalie Barton were allegedly manufacturing steroids and gamma butyrolactone (GBL) at a lab in their in their Tabony Street home.


    The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and U.S. Customs agents were at the home Tuesday night removing containers of a white powder.

    Several barrels were removed from the home
    Lee said the business the couple allegedly ran, liquidresearch.com, mixed the chemicals and distributed them via the Internet and in the metro New Orleans area.


    Edward Barton was charged with possession with intent to distribute anabolic steroids , creation of clandestine lab, possession of GBL (a compound synonymous with steroid use ), possession of marijuana, and possession of controlled dangerous substance in the presence of minor, the couple’s 3-year-old son.


    Natalie Barton was charged with creation of clandestine lab, possession of GBL, possession of marijuana, and possession of controlled dangerous substance in the presence of minor.


    Christopher Durel, identified as an employee of the operation, was charged with creation of clandestine lab and possession of GBL.


    Officials said the investigation is ongoing to determine magnitude of the operation.


    An unnamed relative of the Barton’s, who said they work with the couple in their home, said they have done nothing illegal.


    According to a disclaimer on the website, “all research products offered by Liquid Research are intended for laboratory and research use only.”

    METAIRIE, La. -- Investigators have arrested three people and the probe is expanding after chemicals were seized Tuesday in what officials are calling the largest drug bust in the history of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.

    Edward Barton, 27, Natalie Barton, 25, and Christopher Durel, 26, face charges that include possession with intent to distribute an illegal substance, possession of a controlled substance and operating an illegal lab.

    Tuesday at about 10:30 p.m., agents with the DEA and the Jefferson Parish Narcotics Unit, and members of the Jefferson Parish Fire Department and the U.S. Postal Inspector's Office confiscated more than a dozen containers from the home in the 4700 block of Tabony Street in Metairie. Hazardous materials crews were then brought in to help clear out the house.

    Investigators said the Bartons were selling the substance GBL -- a precursor to the date rape drug GHB -- out of the home and over the Internet. The Bartons allegedly were operating under the company name NuRave Inc.

    In addition to the chemicals, agents also seized marijuana from the home, Sheriff Harry Lee said.

    The Bartons have a 3-year-old child. It was not immediately clear whether the child was in the home at the time of the arrests.

    Investigators are analyzing computer data and customer lists seized in the raid, and more charges may be forthcoming.

    Neighbors told WDSU NewsChannel 6 reporter Heath Allen that the residents of the home were new to the neighborhood, were friends of the homeowner and had moved in a couple of months ago. Neighbors said a man who lives at the home made his living selling a growth hormone .

    Well, I just went to their website, and no wonder they were getting visits from the cops. They are promoting G on there like it's pepsi.

    So all the other companies selling research chemicals are just as susceptible. I honestly don't know how it was possible to sell research chemicals to private parties in the first place and not be in violation of any laws. Even in the labs I've worked in, most controlled substances need to be received by an MD or DVM. It sucks. This is going to screw up a lot of peoples "research".

    Just checked my order number and this is what it says from usps.com tracking

    The U.S. Postal Service was electronically notified by the shipper or shipping partner on February 03, 2004 to expect your package for mailing. Information, if available, is updated every evening. Please check again later

    As I said earlier, they are promoting G (GHB) on the front page. This will raise flags very quickly. They were probably fine until they said "GABA" in big print.

    I might suggest putting the site on the scammer's list since the Feds/DEA or whatever could take over that site and try to bust people for ordering.

    I'm sorry for all of you who have recently ordered from them. In reality, there are many UG labs whose prices are quite a bit better on pretty much everything all the research companies are/were selling.

    I knew this was going to happen sooner then later.
    I really don't think we've got anything to worry about as far as feds coming after us for clomid orders etc...

    Yeah, if you've only used them for clomid/nolva etc, you should be fine, as those substances aren't controlled. If you order GHB or GBL or anything controlled... I might worry

    Thanks for finding the Dizzle. This is very bad. I hope it doesn't trickle down to those who ordered from them. Can't believe that they would go after clomid users. But advertising growth hormone was really stupid. And if they kept customer records, that was even dumber, both for them and for those who ordered. And WTF was the part about the date rape drug. If they were making stuff like that, they should rot in jail.

    Glad I didn't just make an order for anything, since I was just at their site several minutes ago. But I did have a couple of orders within the past 6 weeks or so. I wonder how much details they kept in their records.

    That's a good point. Does anyone have verification that the two named in the charges are the two that run LR?

    If I had to guess there are mods working on getting as much information as possible as we speak. Give them some time and I bet you we'll hear some good feedback and advice. I wouldn't worry about anything happening over the next couple of days guys...it wouldn't really be cost effective for the DEA, etc. Even if they wanted to start tracking down buyers, it would take them quite a while before having all of the information put together. Which, by the way, I truly doubt anything else wil come of this for the people that have ordered from them.

    peace,
