A gas station attendant was arrested after police said he sold Spice in an undercover investigation.
Police arrested Amritpal Singh, 21, 8140 Brave Place, Apt. 5, Indianapolis, on two charges of dealing marijuana after police said he sold Spice, a synthetic marijuana, at a Bargersville gas station.
Singh’s arrest is the first for the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office in a case involving someone selling Spice, Sheriff Doug Cox said.
Investigators have purchased the synthetic drugs in other cases, but the items did not contain any substances banned by state or federal law, Cox said.
Police received a tip in October that someone was selling Spice at the gas station, according to a police report.
Singh was working as a clerk at the station at the time.
Police purchased Spice as part of an undercover investigation, and police later took 34 packets of Spice from the gas station, the report said.
The substance was sent to a state laboratory for testing, and the test results showed the product contained XLR11, an illegal substance, the report said.
Singh was taken to the Johnson County jail, where he was being held on $6,000 bond. The Johnson County prosecutor will decide what, if any, charges to file.
