A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted a Fresno man suspected of possessing ecstasy pills with intent to distribute, U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner said.
An investigation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Fresno Police Department led to the arrest of Austin Frembling, 20, as he was picking up a drug package at a post office box.
According to court documents, Frembling ordered the ecstasy online. The package was shipped from Canada and labeled with another person’s name.
Frembling was released on bail and is due in court Feb. 24. If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine.
