An undercover detective contacted Trowell through Facebook and allegedly negotiated the purchase of 12 pints of 192-proof grain alcohol in mason jars for $240. The detective then met Christie Comkowycz, 31, and Dalton Ridlon, 20, in a parking lot where the alleged exchange took place, and the two were arrested.
