The owner of a Kinston business is under arrest, after an undercover police operation discovered spice inside his shop.
Gamil Abdullah, owner of the Tobacco Shop on North Queen Street, is facing multiple drug charges after a search of the business on Saturday. Inside police say they found 28 packages of the now-illegal synthetic marijuana, along with some real marijuana and $4,755 they believe was connected to the drug sales.
Abdullad was jailed on a $7,500 bond.
A year ago state lawmakers made spice and bath salts illegal in North Carolina.
