GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – A Greenville couple accused of trafficking the deadly drug, “Pink” out of their apartment complex, were in court Thursday.
Theodore Vitaliy Khleborod, age 28, and Ana Milena Barrero, age 24, were both charged with multiple county of distributing numerous drugs including fentanyl and U-47700, also known as Pink.
Barrero entered a guilty plea and will be sentenced at a later date.
Khleborod’s case was continued until a date in December. If he doesn’t enter a guilty plea, his trial will start in either February or March.
The two were arrested in April, after an 18-year-old was found dead in her apartment in Oregon, following an apparent drug overdose. Investigators found a bag of pink, with a packaged return address to Greenville.
Agents said they had around the clock surveillance on the apartment in Greenville and searched a home in Greer.
The raid found 85 parcels that were meant to be sent to customers that contained what they think is U-47700, according to the US Attorney’s office.
They say they also found 9 kg, or roughly 20 pounds,of the drug and $30,000 in cash.
