High suspect tips off police to store selling synthetic drugs
NORMAN, Okla. – Police are cracking down on the sale of synthetic drugs known as “K2″ or “spice.”
Authorities were tipped off to a business called “Ancient Aromatherapy” on Norman’s W. Gray St. after they arrested someone for public intoxication.
Undercover officers went to the store and paid $10 per gram for the product.
Officials said companies that make synthetic drugs try to fly under the radar by changing up the ingredients.
However, these drugs can actually be a lot stronger than THC, the key chemical in marijuana.
Police arrested 41-year-old Dennis Kirby and his wife, 36-year-old Christie Leigh England for possession of a controlled synthetic substance with intent to distribute.
