DEA/Newark Division Accepts Surrender of Registration from Neil Laboratories to Manufacture List I Chemicals.
The DEA/Newark Field Division has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with NEIL LABORATORIES INC., 55 Lake Drive, East Windsor, New Jersey, concerning their ability to manufacture List I Chemicals. As a result of an Order to Show Cause initiated against the registration of NEIL LABORATORIES the company has entered into the following agreement with DEA:
In 2002 investigators and agents from the DEA/ Newark Division, during the execution of a criminal search warrant, delivered an Immediate Suspension Order issued by DEA to Bharat PATEL, President of NEIL LABORATORIES INC. At that time, among other things, NEIL LABORATORIES ability to manufacture DEA regulated List I Chemicals was suspended immediately and all NEIL LABORATORIES List I Chemicals were seized. This agreement concludes a two-year investigation of the firm concerning their activities with the manufacture and distribution of List I Chemicals.
Acting Special Agent in Charge of the DEA/Newark Division Alexander J. Gourley stated " the DEA will continue to investigate and prosecute any and all pharmaceutical companies whose products end up in clandestine laboratories that facilitate and manufacture illegal drugs."
