A Dauphin County store owner is facing criminal charges after continuing to sell synthetic marijuana after it was made illegal in Pennsylvania. Steelton Police along with the Dauphin County Drug Task Force busted store owner, Keith Drabenstadt, after finding synthetic marijuana, drug paraphernalia and over $600 dollars in cash in his store located along the 300 block of North Front Street in Steelton.

"The continued sale and possession of K2 or synthetic marijuana will not be tolerated," Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said. "The substances are illegal and anyone that sells or possesses these synthetic drugs will be prosecuted."

This is believed to be one of the first arrests in the area under the new law that banned certain synthetic drugs in Pennsylvania.

Drabenstadt is charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and posession with intent to deliver drug paraphernalia.
