A local business owner was arrested after law enforcement executed search warrants in Greenbrier and Damascus on Thursday.
Search warrants executed at service stations in Greenbrier and Damascus by the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office and assisting agencies resulted in the arrest of owner, Amarjit Singh, 26, of Damascus.
Searches were conducted after a three-month investigation into the sale of narcotics at Sinclair Gas Station, 61 S. Broadway St., in Greenbrier, and at Main Street Mercantile, 8 S. Broadway St., in Damascus.
According to the sheriff's office, $30,000 in cash, 121 packages of K2, 56 packages of "bath salts," 128 assorted pills and a semi-automatic handgun were recovered in the searches.
Sheriff Andy Shock said bath salts is the street name for a designer drug similar to crystal meth. The crystals resemble epsom salts.
K2 is a natural herb sprayed with synthetic chemicals, and when smoked, produces effects similar to marijuana.
Singh bonded out of jail Thursday on a $15,000 bond, according to the sheriff's office.
He is charged with two felonies, class B and class C for possession with purpose to deliver.
Agencies assisting in the search were Arkansas State Police and Greenbrier and Damascus police departments.
