Huntsville drug bust nets agents a large amount of spice

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Huntsville drug agents arrested a man Thursday night and charged him in a big spice drug bust at an apartment in the 100 block of Prince George Drive.

Police arrested Mohmed Michael Mertinez-Shouca and charged him with drug trafficking. He was taken to the metro jail and his bond is $250,000.

STAC agents served the warrant shortly after 9 p.m. and confiscated a large amount of spice.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse says that “spice refers to a wide variety of herbal mixtures that produce experiences similar to marijuana.”
