The Indiana State Police Lowell Regional Laboratory recently received a poly-drug submission, including marijuana, cocaine, dihydrocodeinone (hydrocodone), hydromorphone, and 11 pink tablets with white specks with a diamond/gemstone logo, suspected Ecstasy (see Photo 4). The exhibits were seized by the Hammond Police Department while executing a search warrant at a local residence. The tablets were 9 millimeters in diameter and 3 millimeters thick, and weighed approximately 280 milligrams each. Analysis by GC/MS and TLC, however, indicated 1-(3-chlorophenyl) piperazine (meta-chlorophenylpiperazine, mCPP) as the major component and only trace MDMA. The tablets were not quantitated, but the mCPP loading was high based on the TIC. mCPP is not currently scheduled under Indiana law. This was the first submission of Ecstasy mimic tablets containing mCPP, and also the first submission of tablets with this logo type, to the laboratory.
