Men Indicted For Clark County Synthetic Drug Bust

CLARK COUNTY -- Four men are facing formal charges for trafficking and selling synthetic drugs from convenience stores in Clark County.

The investigation began February of 2013 when Clark County deputies along with state agents raided a Quality Food Store in Bethel Township on Weinland Avenue.

On Monday, a Clark County grand jury indicted the following: Aziz Ulhaq Zia of Hilliard, Ohio; Fadi Shoukri; and Muhammad Bajwa of Dayton.

A fourth man, Munir Hmidal, will go through a Montgomery County court process.

Authorities say following their February 2013 raid on the Bethel Township location, they raided another Quality Food Store located at 2160 E. Main Street in Springfield.

Police say at the Springfield location was raided on August 13, 2013 they found money, smoking devices and boxes of counterfeit high end merchandise like Gucci, Coach and Louis Vuitton shoes.

The men face several felony charges for trafficking in the drugs and selling them.

Bajwa faces 17 different counts which include: several counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs, several counts of possession of drugs, receiving stolen property, money laundering and trademark counterfeiting.

Zia faces 17 counts as well which include: conspiracy to commit engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, several counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs, possession of drugs, receiving stolen property money laundering and trademark counterfeiting.

He is to appear in court Friday, January 24 at 10 a.m.

Shoukri who is summoned to court in Springfield, Ohio on Thursday January 16th faces several charges including: aggravated trafficking in drugs and possession of drugs with specification.

We're told the investigation was a lengthy one because they needed a counterfeit merchandise expert, results from the state's crime lab and help from state attorneys.

Stricter laws against synthetic drugs also called K2, spice and bath salts passed in 2012, but its still a problem today.

"Part of our problem is they're changing the compounds constantly to try to stay ahead of the law," said Clark County Sheriff, Gene Kelly.
