Basim Abdulwahab

A joint operation by the Jacksonville Police Department and the NCIS has led to the arrest of a man for dealing spice.

21-year-old Basim Abdulwahab of Broadhurst Road in Jacksonville was arrested and charged with 5 counts of trafficking in synthetic cannabinoids, PWIMSD schedule VI controlled substance, sell schedule VI controlled substance, deliver schedule VI controlled substance, manufacture schedule VI controlled substance, PWIMSD marijuana, sell marijuana, deliver marijuana, and manufacturing marijuana.

“This is a prime example of the working relationship we have with NCIS and other law enforcement agencies in Eastern North Carolina. Illegal narcotics have no jurisdictional boundaries and will not be tolerated in our communities,” stated Michael Yaniero, Director of Public Safety.

Abdulwahab was locked up on a $54,000 bond.
