A new controlled substance has appeared in Nevada County. On Sunday evening Grass Valley Police were dispatched to a call of a person behaving strangely near a bus stop in a Brunswick Basin shopping area. Upon arrival officers located a 20 year old male Marc Larkins. According to Sgt. Clint Bates, Larkins was displaying signs of being under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. A field test suggested he was under the influence of a controlled substance.
Sgt Bates says that MXE is a derivative of Ketamine which is a horse anesthetic.
Bates, a veteran of the Grass Valley Police department, says he believes this is the first time that MXE has been present in Grass Valley.
