WINDHAM TWP.: Authorities arrested a Portage County father and son whom they say operated a distribution point for a synthetic form of marijuana called “Spice.”
Samuel Jason Larlham, 41, and Kyle J. Larlham, 19, of the 9000 block of state Route 303, were taken into custody after the Portage County Drug Task Force obtained a search warrant Wednesday. The unit had received a tip about possible drug activity at the residence, according to the Portage County Sheriff’s Office.
Samuel Larlham was charged with trafficking in marijuana and having weapons under disability. Kyle Larlham was charged with trafficking in marijuana.
During the search Task Force Agents recovered enough products to produce approximately 6 pounds of Spice, along with heroin, drug paraphernalia and firearms.
Spice or “K2” is said to give the user a marijuana-like high. Sold in shops and online as incense, it is being smoked as a legal alternative to marijuana.
Both suspects were booked into the Portage County Jail.
