3 arrested for dealing in date-rape drug substitute, say Roseville police


Roseville police detectives took three people off the streets suspected of supplying the local area and Sacramento County with a synthetic narcotic similar to the "date-rape" drug GHB.

Investigators obtained a search warrant about a suspected source and served it at a residence in Rancho Cordova on Dec. 9, according to Officer Dee Dee Gunther. Police reported recovering a large amount of a GHB substitute disguised and sold as massage oil, Gunther said.

Additionally, officers stated they found more than $20,000 in cash, guns, methamphetamine packaged for sale and other drug-dealing paraphernalia.

Gunther added the house had multiple security cameras and a fortified front door.

The investigation also led to a search of another location where they found more large quantities of the synthetic GHB.
