Hennepin County prosecutors Friday charged two people with selling synthetic marijuana following raids of a home and vehicle in south Minneapolis.
Eric Uriah Renfro, 47, of Minneapolis and Melisa Kay Moe, 38, of St. Paul each face two felony charges.
Officer Corey Schmidt with the Minneapolis Police Department said the investigation follows a string of about 100 synthetic marijuana overdoses from late September through mid October.
"Ultimately the goal with this investigation is to learn more that can lead to more arrests to further reduce the amount of overdoses that are coming from this synthetic marijuana," Schmidt said.
Six people were arrested in all, including three cited for purchasing the drugs.
Police seized about a quarter pound of synthetic pot during the raid as well as some cash.
