Winchester men plead guilty to drug distribution

lorenzo wheeler homicide

Two Winchester men plead guilty to possessing and distributing Eutylone, a Schedule I controlled substance.

Eutylone is a stimulant that has psychoactive effects and is usually sold and falsely advertised as MDMA or Ecstasy.

Eutylone is much more dangerous than those as it produces a weaker effect leading the user to take more.

Gregory Kinley Frye, 54, and his Nephew Lamont Antoine Parson, 39, were apprehended after law enforcement made multiple controlled buys and a search was conducted of their home that recovered over 3 kilograms of the substance, a 9mm pistol, and a scale.

They both face up to 20 years with sentencing scheduled for spring of 2022.
