$20,000 worth of spice confiscated in apartment drug bust


Huntsville Police made a large spice bust at an apartment on Thursday night.

Officers served a search warrant at the Monte Sano Terrace Apartments, at Apt. 411.

A long-term investigation led them to this location to make an arrest. There, they found several boxes of spice worth $20,000. Police said this controlled substance analog has a hallucinogenic effect similar to LSD.

Mohmed Michael Mertinez-Shoucair was arrested during the bust and charged with trafficking a controlled substance.

Mertinez-Shoucair was arrested and charged with drug trafficking in June during a spice bust at the Lincoln Mini-Mart, on Washington Street, which was busted twice before.

He was charged with trafficking in a controlled substance analog for this bust. His bond was set at $250,000.00.

Other charges expected to follow on other individuals involved.
