A Saukville teenager’s plan to have the drugs he ordered from California delivered to a house near where he works backfired, and now the 18-year-old faces criminal charges in Ozaukee County Circuit Court.

Instead of intercepting it as he had planned, the package ordered by Noah H. Isaacson wound up in the hands of the homeowners whose address he used and they took it directly to the Saukville Police Department, according to a criminal complaint filed Feb. 2 charging Isaacson with attempted possession of ketamine, a felony, and a misdemeanor count of attempted possession of a controlled substance.

The man and his wife who dropped the package off at the police station on Jan. 13 said a young man who identified himself as Isaacson and said he worked at a nearby car wash stopped at their house three times asking if a package for him had been delivered there, the complaint states.

The package was addressed to Isaacson and had a return address in California.

Police called a U.S. Postal Service inspector, who came to the station and opened the package. Inside was a DVD case that contained four capsules. Testing of the white powder inside the capsules was inconclusive.

Also in the DVD case was a crystalline substance that tested positive for ketamine.

Ketamine is an anesthetic with hallucinogenic effects that is sometimes used illegally by people to get high.

When confronted by police on Feb. 1, Isaacson said he knew the package he ordered was delivered to someone else’s home and admitted that he had gone to the house to ask about it. The package, he said, contained tools that he had meant to have delivered to his place of employment but mistakenly had sent to a nearby house, according to the complaint.

Isaacson then said he attempted to order an African cold medication, which may have been in the package, the complaint states.

Eventually, Isaacson admitted that he intentionally had the package, which contained ketamine he ordered online, sent to the wrong address and had intended to intercept it, according to the complaint.

He said the substance in the capsules was a form of DMT, or dimethyltryptamine, a drug that produces a psychedelic effect similar to LSD, occurs naturally in some plants and is a controlled substance in Wisconsin, the complaint states.

During a court hearing last week, Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Steve Cain ruled that Isaacson can be released from jail in lieu of a $2,500 signature bond and ordered him not to use or possess intoxicants or controlled substances and not to have contact with the couple who turned his package over to police.
