Hearings continued for store owners accused of selling fake pot

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Preliminary hearings for several Harrisburg store owners accused of selling synthetic marijuana were continued Monday morning.  The charges were filed after Harrisburg vice units conducted a raid in July.

About $50,000 worth of synthetic drugs was removed from shelves on July 15. Harrisburg Police raided five city stores and charged seven people during the bust.

24 year-old Cachet House and 27-year-old Shanea House were charged for selling synthetic drugs inside the Hajamas store located on Derry Street. Masawudu Garbia, 33,  faces similar charges in connection with the Hajamas store located on N. 6th Street.

Dounde Diallo, 40, from Lemoyne was charged for selling synthetic drugs in the Redd's All Nighter store located on the 1800 block of North Street. Moumar Diallo, 44, and 32-year-old Anna Orosco are facing similar charges for selling synthetic drugs inside Anna's Market on Walnut Street.

Coffie Blay, 39,  who owns Blay's Grocery on the 2000 block of State Street was charged for selling synthetic marijuana and selling drug paraphernalia. Blay spoke with abc27 in July and said he was unaware the law changed and felt police should have given him a warning.

"Don't do it no more. I feel like that's the way they're supposed to do it," said Blay. "If they give me warning again...I do it again...that means I know what I'm doing. That means I'm disrespecting the law."

Shanea House and Dounde Diallo already waived their preliminary hearings, sending the case to trial.  The hearings for the other five suspects will be held at a later date.
