2 men accused of selling fake pot
BATON ROUGE - Two Baton Rouge men have been indicted on drug and weapons charges that accuse them of selling synthetic marijuana out of a convenience store.
An East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury charged 51-year-old Joseph Hoa Do and 48-year-old Sang J. Vu with two counts each of possession with intent to distribute narcotics and one count each of illegal carrying of a weapon.
District Attorney Hillar Moore III says Baton Rouge police seized 216 packets of synthetic marijuana, over $154,000 in cash, a 9 mm handgun and an AK-47 assault rifle from Friendly Food Mart when they arrested Do and Vu on Jan. 13.
The case has been assigned to state District Judge Tony Marabella.
