Bath Salts, Synthetic Marijuana Seized in Dover Raid

Updated:

DOVER, Del.- Authorities say three people are facing charges following the seizure of a large quantity of illegal bath salts and synthetic marijuana during the raid of a Dover convenience store.

Dover police said that on Wednesday, March 21, detectives conducted a search warrant at the Hot Spot located at 1043 Walker Road, related to the alleged sale and distribution of bath salts.

According to police, the detectives seized 471 doses of bath salts, 450 doses of synthetic marijuana, thousands of items of drug paraphernalia, and more than $4,500 in cash.

As a result of the search warrant, police arrested 48-year-old Yassir Alhassan; 49-year-old Ahmed Osman; and 50-year-old Sandra Osman, all of Middletown. Each suspect was charged with possession of a controlled substance Tier 5 quantity; delivery of a controlled substance, second-degree conspiracy, possession of a controlled substance with aggravating factor, and possession of drug paraphernalia. All were released on $36,500 unsecured bond.

Bath salts and synthetic marijuana (also known as K2) were banned last year in Delaware. The drugs have been linked to serious psychological and physical health risks.
