Federal prosecutors in Madison announced Wednesday that Michael Moreno and Paul Heidbreder, both of Hayward, had been indicted. The indictment alleges that Moreno developed a source for Alpha-PVP, a stimulant deemed illegal last year, in China.

Heidbreder and an unnamed co-conspirator gave Moreno money for the drug and Moreno wired it to China. The three of them divided up the Alpha-PVP and distributed it to customers in northwestern Wisconsin for $100 per gram.

The indictment also charges Moreno and Heidbreder with attempting to possess Alpha-PVP and possessing the drug with intent to distribute.

Online records did not list the indictment or attorneys for either man as of late Wednesday afternoon.
