Cave Creek man convicted in designer drug case

PHOENIX -- A Cave Creek man has been convicted of manufacturing and distributing designer drugs disguised as bath salts or household cleaning items.

Federal prosecutors said 51-year-old Michael Rocky Lane faces up to 20 years in prison and-or a $1 million fine when he's sentenced on Oct. 21.

Authorities said Lane and another man began manufacturing a designer drug that contained a powerful stimulant in early 2011 but was labeled as a bath salt. It was later relabeled as an "ultra-premium glass cleaner."

Lane then allegedly manufactured other designer drugs that were labeled as insect attractants or "exuberance powder."

Authorities said Lane made nearly $8,000 a day from domestic Internet sales of his products to individual customers alone.

He was arrested after federal authorities served search warrants on his company in Tempe.
