New York pharmacist sent DEA agent cocaine card: officials

A New York City pharmacist thought sending a greeting card with cocaine to a DEA agent could throw off an investigation of his store, officials say.

His plan didn’t work out.

Dimitrios Lymberatos, 34, is charged with obstruction of justice and conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice.

Last year, the Drug Enforcement Administration began a regulatory investigation of the pharmacy in Queens after its application was flagged for incomplete information about the owner, according to court documents.

The investigation substantially delayed the pharmacy from dispensing controlled substances, including in-person interviews with the operators and subpoenas. That was hurting the business financially, officials say.

In May, the investigator opened a card sent to her home and found several small packets with a white powdery substance later determined to be cocaine. The investigator immediately notified colleagues at the DEA.

According to court documents, investigators learned that Lymberatos hired a private investigators to

New York pharmacist sent cocaine to DEA agent probing his store, feds say

A New York City pharmacist under investigation by federal drug authorities allegedly took “sinister action” to disrupt the probe: he had a greeting card filled with cocaine sent to the home of the lead investigator, prosecutors charged Friday.

Dimitrios Lymberatos, 34, was charged with one count each of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice for seeking to “interfere with the investigation through intimidation,” said acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss.

“Lymberatos’s misguided message was received loud and clear – and he now faces the possibility of a lengthy prison term for his potentially harmful attempt to obstruct law enforcement,” Strauss said.

Lymberatos, who operates a pharmacy in Queens, surrendered to authorities Friday morning. He faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted on both counts.

“I’m still in shock right now,” said a person who answered the phone at Lymberatos’s store, Village Pharmacy. “We’re just at a loss

In Bid to Adapt, Equinox Designs Outdoor Gym for New York City

“Weather is not holding us back,” Nadia Biski, Equinox’s SVP of architecture and design, says to AD PRO. It’s a confident—and almost enthusiastic—statement that’s particularly striking at this moment. As October temperatures continue to drop, it’s becoming increasingly difficult not to think about upcoming inclement winter. Because for those in many regions of the country, the solace gained from an outdoor walk or socially distanced park outing will likely fall by and large by the wayside. 

That’s one reason it’s so interesting that Equinox would choose to open up a new outdoor gym in New York City this past weekend. The luxury fitness brand, which debuted its first space of this type earlier this year in Los Angeles, is part of a sector that has been particularly hard-hit by COVID-19. Chic home exercise equipment may be more in demand than ever before, but the same certainly can’t be said of

New York City Shopping Inches Back. No Store Required.

The city is woollier than it’s been in a while — everyone seems to be crimping the usual boundaries. E-bikes and scooters zip through the middle of the street, and restaurants have annexed the pavement outside their doors in hopes of keeping their businesses afloat. After a brutal spring and summer of pandemic uncertainty and economic instability, New York is doing its best to pass for its old self, but in truth, things haven’t felt this unsteady since right after 9/11.

In this context, shopping for anything other than essentials has felt foolish verging on irresponsible. I’m still haunted by the last item of discretionary clothing I bought before quarantine — so much so that I won’t share it here. Even now that stores are open, that humble jolt of electricity you feel when touching a new, covetable garment is almost always dampened by the rank sweat gathering beneath your
