St. Paul man admits to sending hallucinogen-soaked letters to state prison inmates

Federal prosecutors say the Saint Paul man pleaded guilty to criminal charges, alleging he smuggled drugs into several Minnesota state prisons.

Walter “Disney” Davis, 40, appeared in U.S. District Court on June 15 and pleaded guilty to all charges two days later, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Minneapolis.

Authorities said the investigation began in March 2021 after the drugs were delivered to several Minnesota Department of Corrections jails, including Stillwater, Oak Park Heights, Faribo and Rush City.

Investigators identified Davis as a suspect, and on April 21, 2021, he attempted to send six letters to six DOC inmates. The letters included news articles printed on high-quality Strathmore-brand cotton fiber paper impregnated with MDMB-4en-PINACA, a synthetic cannabinoid substance that causes hallucinogenic effects when consumed.

Investigators intercepted the letters and obtained search warrants for two houses that Davis frequented.

At his home in Egan, investigators seized two packets of fentanyl, $3,000 in cash, an electronic scale, and a .38 pistol. At the second location, in an apartment in Maplewood, more than 400 grams of fentanyl, a digital scale, an aerosol can of MDMB-4en-PINACA, a stack of Strathmore paper, and a loaded .357 pistol were found.

Davis pleaded guilty to one count of attempted distribution of a controlled substance analogue, one count of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, and two counts of possession of a firearm as a convicted felon. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled later.

The DOC and the US Postal Inspectorate investigated.
