LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A University of Kansas staff member has
been arrested on suspicion of manufacturing a controlled substance
in a university lab.
The school's Public Safety Office said a 28-year-old medicinal chemistry research aide is accused of using the lab to make MDA. The substance is similar to ecstasy and used illicitly for its mood-enhancing and hallucinogenic properties.
Police say the suspect's co-workers called them Monday morning, and the suspect was arrested a few hours later before posting a $15,000 bond. The case is being reviewed by Douglas County prosecutors and no official charges have been filed.
A university spokeswoman said the staffer works half-time in an entry-level research support position.
