GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Narcotics officers have arrested clerks at three Gulfport stores on charges of possession with intent to distribute Spice or similar products containing synthetic cannabinoids.
The Sun Herald reports 64-year-old Ty Nguyen and 45-year-old Huan Huu Nguyen, both of Biloxi, and 26-year-old Duy Van Nguyen, of Gulfport, were arrested Tuesday and released from the police department on bonds of $400 each. The charges are a misdemeanor based on a new city ordinance.
The products are banned in most Coast cities and unincorporated areas of Harrison, Hancock and Jackson counties. Bay St. Louis still allows the products. City officials voted Tuesday night to prohibit the sale to anyone younger than 21.
