Carteret County lawmen arrested two convenience store owners who said they did not realize they had bath salts in their car.
Isam Asab Elquza and Nehad Isam Elquza were charged after lawmen found a gram of bath salts in their car. The husband and wife own and operate the "In And Out" convenience store.
Last Wesnesday bath salts became illegal in North Carolina, and store owners were forced to pull them from shelves.
A press release from the Carteret County Sheriff called the couple "morally deficient, and now criminals in the eyes of the law."
