Last updated on Wednesday, September 4, 2013

(BLOOMINGTON) - 20-year-old Dipesh Sharma, of Bloomington, was arrested after a confidential informant purchased a synthetic marijuana called “Darkness”.

According to a Bloomington Police Department press release, Sharma was charged after police found 150 grams of the drug in a mini mart in the 2000 block of South Rogers Street.

Police began their investigation two months ago when they received information that the mini mart was selling the drugs. The employee selling the synthetic marijuana was the owner's son.

Police used confidential informants to make several purchases from Sharma at the store and in a local park.

On Aug. 28, Bloomington police, along with Indiana State Excise Police and investigators assigned to the Organized Crime and Corruption Unit of the Indiana State Police, served 13 search warrants on the business, the residences of the owners, various banks and Sharma's vehicle.

Police say the case is still under investigation and other arrests are possible.
