GRANBURY (CBSDFW.COM) – Two convenience store clerks in Hood County were arrested Friday afternoon for selling K2 at the tobacco shop where they worked. Narcotics investigators discovered the illegal substance being sold while working undercover.
The suspects are 28-year-old Guravtar Singh and 43-year-old Vicki Elaine Buckner. They worked at a store in the 3100 block of Lipan Highway. The undercover officers found both suspects selling K2 at the store and made the arrests, according to a statement from the Hood County Sheriff’s Office.
K2 is a synthetic herbal product that behaves similar to marijuana. A total of 921 grams of the illegal substance were seized from the store. “Numerous people have been hurt using the synthetic herbs,” said Sheriff Roger Deeds.“I’m very proud that my narcotics unit was able to make this case and stop this large seizure of poison from hitting the streets.”
Singh and Buckner have both received felony charges of manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance. Singh’s bond has been set at $200,000 while Buckner’s bond is set at $20,000. Additional charges are pending as the investigation continues.
