Authorities have arrested six people as part of a weekslong investigation of synthetic cannabis sales that caused dozens of overdoses in downtown Minneapolis last month.
Three of the arrests were made in simultaneous raids shortly after 10 a.m. Thursday of a vehicle and a residence in the 2700 block of S. Chicago Avenue.
A 38-year-old St. Paul woman and a 47-year-old Minneapolis man were arrested on suspicion of felony drug possession after investigators found about a quarter-pound of synthetic pot, drug paraphernalia and some cash at the residence, according to the arrest report. The two suspects named in the report were booked into the county jail, where they remained Friday afternoon without bail. No court dates have been set.
