To the "highest" bidder PALO ALTO, Calif. (Reuters) - A California man has been arrested on federal drug charges after he allegedly sold dried opium pods to undercover federal drug agents via Internet auction site eBay (NasdaqNM:EBAY - news), U.S. prosecutors said Friday. Quote Data provided by Reuters Krsna Lev-Twombly, 30, on Thursday was arrested at his Sacramento, California home, after he allegedly advertised and sold 700 dried Papaver Somniferum poppy pods between July 2000 and this month, the U.S. Attorney's Office in San Francisco said in a statement. Lev-Twombly's eBay listing allegedly contained a disclaimer that the pods were intended for decorative use only. A chemist for the Drug Enforcement Administration, however, said the pods as they were delivered to undercover agents could be steeped like tea and consumed as a controlled substance. If convicted of distributing opium poppy, Lev-Twombly would face a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment and a fine of $1 million. He was released on $50,000 bond on Thursday. EBay spokesman Kevin Pursglove said the company worked with law enforcement on the case. "There have been a lot of folks who have found that attempting fraud on eBay does not pay," he said.
