After federal investigators intercepted a package containing a supposed “date-rape” drug, Pacific Grove police said they arrested a man who accepted the illegal shipment Thursday.
Officers arrested Michael McClure Veitengruber, 25, of Pacific Grove, on charges of receiving the drug Ketamine by mail. Police said Ketamine is a prescription tranquilizer most commonly used on animals.
The agency reported that in high doses, Ketamine produces an effect known as a “K-Hole,” “out of body,” or “near-death” experience. “Due to its dissociative effect,” the DEA reported, “it is reportedly used as a date-rape drug.”
The case began on Aug. 28, when investigators at the Los Angeles International Airport mail facility randomly checked a parcel shipped from the United Kingdom and addressed to M. Veitengruber in Pacific Grove.
On Aug. 31, officers arranged a “controlled delivery” of the package containing Ketamine. Police said Veitengruber accepted the parcel and was arrested.
A Google search for Michael Veitengruber finds a web page for car enthusiasts. Appears that Mike Veitengruber likes to rice German Cars.
I see those two cars every day on the road behind PG High School, in front of the Forest Grove condos.
