Isle of Wight deputies swarmed the Carrollton Tobacco Shop Wednesday afternoon, executing search warrants, looking for illegal synthetic drugs they say were sold by four different owners and operators of the business.
“With a number of undercover agents, we made multiple undercover purchases of spice and synthetics cannabinoids,” said Sheriff Mark Marshall. “They didn’t have it out on the counter, they had it in a special location. They would go in and sell it to our undercover agents.”
Three arrested for “Spice” charges in Carrollton
Walid Soliman and Lisa Ruppert were arrested and charged with distribution of spice and conspiracy to commit a felony.
The investigation started back in January after several instances of overdoses took place on or near the store’s property, some as recent as this last week.
