2 Arrested On Tuesday For Distributing Marijuana In Georgia Convenience Stores

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Agents with the  Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit Drug Task Force began an investigation into reports of convenience stores within the circuit distributing suspected marijuana.

The investigation revealed that that a number of convenience stores were indeed selling marijuana, leading agents to apply for arrest warrants for area store owners. These stores were located in Chattooga, Dade, Walker, and Catoosa counties. The illegal substances were packaged with misleading labels indicating the contents were "Legal in all 50 States", contained "CBD", and had been "Lab Tested".

The first of these store owners were arrested and booked on Tuesday. They are identified as the following:

Risilkumar Patel, 26, 1007 Cross St., Rossville, Ga. 30741 

Tanjot Bajwa, 41, 904 Honeysuckle Trail Fort Oglethorpe, Ga. 30742

These products claiming to have "No THC", "CBD", or "Hemp Flower" may contain Marijuana. These products may be illegal to distribute, purchase, or possess.

 Additional arrest warrants have been obtained and arrests are pending.
