Police and federal investigators arrested six members of the alleged drug delivery service "Mike's Candyshop" on Wednesday, in connection with the death of HQ Trivia co-founder Colin Kroll last year. Geoffrey Berman, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, charged Ariel "A" "Mike" Tavarez, Christian Baez, Luis "Sito" Meson, Gregoris "Greg" Martinez, Kevin "Kev" “JB" Grullon, and Joiffrey "Jeff" "Jay" Urena with one count each of conspiracy to distribute cocaine and heroin, which carries a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison.

According to Peter C. Fitzhugh, Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations, Mike's Candyshop "allowed people to order heroin and cocaine to their doorstep" on demand, "with the same convenience as if they were ordering a pizza." During business hours — 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. daily, major holidays excluded — customers simply texted a number and within a few hours, a delivery person showed up. Berman's office contends that Tavarez typically took the orders, dispatching Baez, Meson, Grullon, and Urena as couriers. Martinez, meanwhile, allegedly managed the drug supply and the money.

Police reportedly found the Candyshop's product, which allegedly came packaged in glass vials with multi-colored tops, in Kroll's apartment on December 16th. Early that morning, the 34-year-old's girlfriend called in a wellness check: responding officers found Kroll dead in his bedroom, with drug paraphernalia on-hand. According to Berman's office, investigators found a powder cocktail of cocaine, heroin, and "other substances" at the scene, plus texts to the Candyshop on Kroll's cell phone — including messages sent the day before he died.

"Allegedly, even after they realized the potency of the drugs they were distributing and selling, the defendants continued to sell their poison," Berman said in a statement.

Before helping launch HQ Trivia with Rus Yusupov, Kroll created Vine. Twitter, which acquired Vine in 2012, fired Kroll in 2014 over allegations of "creepy behavior toward female colleagues." Kroll issued a formal apology statement four years later, having gone on to build an app some hailed as "the millennial Jeopardy!" in the interim. HQ Trivia invites users to tune in for a live, 15-minute quiz show, awarding cash prizes to the winners. Kroll was the CEO at the time of his death.
