Northern Wisconsin men charged with importing drugs from China

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A federal grand jury has incited two northern Wisconsin men on charges of conspiring to import drugs from overseas.

Federal prosecutors in Madison announced Wednesday that Michael Moreno and Paul Heidbreder, both of Hayward, had been indicted. The indictment alleges that Moreno developed a source for Alpha-PVP, a stimulant deemed illegal last year, in China.

Heidbreder and an unnamed co-conspirator gave Moreno money for the drug and Moreno wired it to China. The three of them divided up the Alpha-PVP and distributed it to customers in northwestern Wisconsin for $100 per gram.

The indictment also charges Moreno and Heidbreder with attempting to possess Alpha-PVP and possessing the drug with intent to distribute.

Online records did not list the indictment or attorneys for either man as of late Wednesday afternoon.
