What is the difference between misdemeanors and felonies in Arizona?
A grand jury indicted a pair of brothers on charges that they were selling “spice,” an illegal synthetic drug, in smoke shops.
Omar Abuarar and Nathmi Abuarar face multiple felony counts, according to the indictment, which was returned May 31.
The brothers were accused of selling the drug between August 2016 to May 2017. Investigators also found a storage locker where packets of spice were stored, according to a statement from the Arizona Attorney General’s Office.
The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Phoenix division office and Maricopa County High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Taskforce.
Omar Abuarar, 34, is charged with 11 felony counts, including conspiracy, illegally conducting an enterprise, sale of a dangerous drug, possession of a dangerous drug for sale and selling or offering to sell cigarettes stamped for reservation sales.
Nathmi Abuarar, 46, is charged with nine felony counts, including conspiracy, illegally conducting an enterprise, sale of a dangerous drug, and selling or offering to sell cigarettes stamped for reservation sales.
