A restaurant owner was arrested and charged after he was caught selling drugs to boost his store’s income, according to police reports in New York.
Brooklyn Police said that the owner of Gwynnett St., was arrested for allegedly trying to increase his bottom line by selling the Molly drug.
Carl McCoy told federal agents that he was having money problems and agreed to receive a package containing rock solid synthetic methylone, according to a complaint in federal court in Brooklyn.
McCoy, whose Williamsburg restaurant opened to rave reviews last year, with dishes like smoked black cod and duck with spaetzle beet, was released on $25,000 bail on Wednesday, after agreeing to testify against his accomplice.
Federal agents intercepted a package at John F Kennedy Airport, which was sent from China, after suspicion that it contains the Molly drug.
The package was addressed to McCoy, whose restaurant features a tasting menu that costs $120 per person.
