DEA raids two chemical supply firms for selling Fentanyl on the internet

http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/mundelein/news/ct-mun-online-narcotic-sales-charges-tl-0607-story.html

The two companies are:

1717 CheMall Corp, operated by 52-year-old Wei Xu, was located in Mundelein, IL.
Ark Pharm Inc, operated by 53-year-old Liangfu Huang, was located in Arlington Heights, IL.

Ark Pharm sold, according to their LinkedIn page, "building blocks, scaffolds and other advanced intermediates. We provide various heterocycles including azetidines, indoles, imidazoles, pyrazines, pyrazoles, pyridazines, pyridines, pyrimidines, piperazines, piperidines, pyrrolidines, thiazoles and triazoles." If you surf the discussion boards where drug discovery chemists meet, you'll find that Ark Pharm was a respected supplier of these products - they had good prices and good quality.

According to the complaint, the DEA made several purchases of fentanyl and fentanyl precursors from both companies. Before you could buy, either company required you to fax a signed disclaimer that said you'd use the drugs for "laboratory use" only. Neither company was licensed to sell narcotics.
