In April 2016, Alig signed for vacuum-packed DVDs that contained more than 100 grams of MDMA/ecstasy, according a complaint written by a special agent from Homeland Security Investigations.

Alig, 23, faces two counts — one for trying to import methylenedioxymethamphetamine (known as MDMA or ecstasy) and one for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
