Spice sales land businessman in jail



A Noblesville convenience store owner accused of selling the illegal synthetic drug “spice” was arrested April 12 after a monthlong investigation.

Kamal Singh, 48, of Noblesville has been charged with four counts of dealing a synthetic cannabinoid (spice), five counts of possession of a synthetic cannabinoid and one count of maintaining a common nuisance. All are Class D felonies and can carry a jail sentence of six months to three years in prison, and a fine upon conviction.

Singh’s arrest stems from the execution of a search warrant at his business, a Valero gas station located at 2995 Conner St., Noblesville.

Officers from Hamilton/Boone County Drug Task Force, Noblesville Police Dept., Hamilton County Sheriff’s Dept. and Indiana State Excise Police were involved in the arrest. Police officials said the investigation will likely lead to further arrests.
