Burglar targets “Spice”
An unknown male burglarized a downtown store last night, apparently with only one intention as he grabbed several packets of “Spice” products.
Here’s the blurb from today’s Crime Report:
Express Food Mart, 2010 Princess Anne St, 12/20 11:05 pm. Police responded to an alarm activation and found the front door with its glass broken out and items from the checkout counter strewn across the floor. The surveillance video showed a male suspect breaking the glass and entering the business, then stealing a number of containers of “Spice” products. The suspect was a black male wearing a light gray jacket with a hood, and the hood was pulled forward to conceal his face. The sleeves on the jacket were blue, with a white stripe going down each arm. The suspect was also wearing dark-colored baggy pants, tan work boots, and gloves. The investigation is ongoing.
Because of the danger of this product, the Police Department supports the emergency legislation to ban its sale and possession.
Here is a release from the American Association of Poison Control Centers, dated today, detailing concerns about the harmful effects of this substance.
